At this rate 27.5p after 3 years will be a stetch and not a gravy train.

Share register needs attention, too little held by 3%+ holders imho and better names would help give others confidence. Weak looking. 22.50p ceiling needs to be broken to run to 26p+. Where will the demand come from when there are 53% approx outside of 3% holders, 233M shares approx. What catalyst to spur demand to drive this up when there are so many shares in so many small players hands?

After the carrying value of Warwick Acoustics took a big hit due to covid, this is more encouraging. htTps://warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/environmentally_friendly_audio/

Options set too low send the wrong massage when the market expects a stretch. Now everyone will think this is a gravy train or that 25% over 3 years is a stretch. Either perception won't attract new money.

8% shareholder yield in a vehicle like this should be about normal not a stretch. Not ambitious but leading to more dilution.

At least the benefit is delivered in tranches over 3-5 years. They pay for the shares at the current sp, they only get them if the share price gives 8% a year compound,so If the shares vest then the likes of us will get something if they do. Sounds quite bullish to me.

The agritech start-up using AI to boost crop yields (18th August 2020). A start-up which aims to use cutting-edge technologies to help farmers improve crop yields has raised £250,000 from the MEIF Proof of Concept & Early Stage Fund, which is managed by Mercia and part of the Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF). The funding will allow Earth Rover to launch its first product, a ‘crop scouting’ system which predicts the size and timing of harvests. The Earth Rover system uses cameras fitted to a tractor to scan the plants and measure their growth as the vehicle passes through the fields on routine farm operations. The data is then analysed using artificial intelligence (AI) housed in a supercomputer on board the tractor. Crop scouting is traditionally carried out by farmers walking the field. Earth Rover, which is based in Newport, Shropshire, aims to provide more accurate predictions to help them produce the right number of crops – enough to meet contracts with buyers while avoiding food waste that has to be ploughed back into the fields. It also helps farmers plan their harvesting labour requirements. The system, which is suitable for high value crops such as broccoli and lettuce, is currently being trialled at Polybell Farm in Doncaster, one of the UK’s leading organic vegetable producers. Earth Rover will initially target growers in the UK and Spain, which has a year-round season. The company, which has been funded so far through angel investment and by a contract with the European Space Agency, is also working on robotic systems for herbicide-free weeding and harvesting. The MEIF funding will be paid in two tranches over the next 12 months subject to commercial milestones and will allow the company to fund current trials and bring the product to market. David Whitewood, CEO of Earth Rover, said: “Technologies such as AI and robotics have revolutionised manufacturing in recent years, yet agriculture has suffered from a lack of investment and still relies on traditional techniques. At a time when we face the challenge of feeding a growing population with limited land and labour supplies, it is time for agriculture to undergo the same transformation. At Earth Rover we aim to play a leading role in the digitisation of farming to make the industry more productive and sustainable.” David Baker, Investment Manager at Mercia, added: “Vegetable growers routinely overplant crops due to the difficulty in predicting yields and the need to fulfil stringent contracts with supermarkets. This pushes up costs and means that much of the crop simply rots in the fields, creating additional carbon emissions. We believe Earth Rover’s system could help increase crop yields by 5 per cent and reduce costs by a similar amount. This funding will help the company to prove its value and launch into the market.” Ryan Cartwright, Senior Manager at the British Business Bank, said: “This latest equity investment is a great example of the innovative Midlands’ businesses that the MEIF seeks to support. The funding will help Earth Rover as it begins to commercialise its technology and we’d encourage other start-ups within Shropshire and the Marches area to consider the options available through the MEIF.” Mandy Thorn, chair of the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “This is a hugely exciting project which shows the Marches is at the cutting edge of innovation in agriculture and developing high-tech solutions which improve efficiency and sustainability. We are delighted that the MEIF has supported Earth Rover and look forward to this project going from strength to strength.” The Midlands Engine Investment Fund project is supported financially by the European Union using funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 and the European Investment Bank.

Biomass pioneer raises further funds after trials success (18th August 2020). Nova Pangaea Technologies, the Redcar company which has found a way to use non-food biomass to make biofuels and other chemicals, has raised a further £900,000 from investors following successful trials of its technology. The latest funding has come from NPIF – Mercia Equity Finance, which is managed by Mercia and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, the UK Government’s Future Fund and existing private investors, and will support the company in the run-up to a planned Series A investment later in the year. As part of the latest investment, the company has strengthened its executive management team with the appointment of Neil Guilder as CFO, Dr Neil Hindle as CTO and Peter McGenity as CCO. Neil Guilder has over 25 years’ experience as CFO of ambitious SMEs where he has led successful development financing and corporate growth. Dr Neil Hindle has over 20 years’ industry experience and will lead the technical development and operations of the REFNOVAƒ patented process. Peter McGenity has over 30 years’ international executive experience in renewable energy, ethanol and agri-processing and will drive the company’s commercial development. Nova Pangaea patented REFNOVAƒ technology converts materials such as woody residues, wheat straw and sugar cane and uses them as a basis to create biofuels and other chemicals, helping to produce additional revenue for farmers and reduce dependence on fossil fuels without using land or crops suitable for food. It completed its demonstration plant at Redcar in December 2019 and following successful trials, gained its first international customer in March this year. The latest funding round brings the total raised to £3m with a full series A funding to come later this year. Sarah Ellerby, CEO at Nova Pangaea Technologies said: “It’s been a transformative six months for Nova Pangaea as we continue to accelerate our commercial offering and move towards a potential Series-A financing. This oversubscription of existing shareholders and support from Future Fund is a key indicator of the level of commitment from our shareholders to execute on the high-level of commercial interest in our technology. With the executive team in place, we are now in a position to execute the growth plan.” Simon Crabtree, Investment Manager with Mercia, said: “Nova Pangaea’s technology has the potential to help break our reliance on oil and create hundreds of jobs in the years ahead. The technology has already been successfully trialled and this latest investment will allow the team to collect more data to prove its effectiveness as it looks to target the global marketplace.” Grant Peggie, Director at the British Business Bank, said: “NPIF continues to provide vital funding to Northern businesses across the region. We are pleased to continue this support, and are proud to work in partnership the Thames Valley Combined Authority and with Mercia and our other fund managers to make a real impact on the small business community, creating jobs and supporting innovation to unlock the North’s potential.” The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund project is supported financially by the European Union using funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 and the European Investment Bank.
