|I see Marwyn have raised money yesterday. Should mean that gloo is about to announce a big reverse takeover within a few weeks and start moving higher.|
|What's the management like?...seem a little unproven in the plc arena.|
|Marwyn have sold out of eOne and are going to be looking to make follow up investments in their other holdings. Gloo looks the most likely candidate. Watch this space.|
If you are feeling the desperation of these times, let it all out here.
For Stock market related angst only please, or I'll need to filter.|
