25% approx owned by Woodford, why buy this when WPCT (with all its faults) is less volatile. Granted, Mercis hould rise from here but still wpct owns 25%.

I thought the Results were good and importantly the outlook is encouraging. The discount appears too wide, so I have been adding further to my holding.

Jonathan Diggines – Executive Director Funds said “We are thrilled to be working with BBB to deliver these funds to Northern SMEs.

One of the safest bets on AIM to double the share price in a short space of time. It has no debt, £20m in the bank, and todays contracts on top of all that, yet it is ignored by the PIs who prefer to punt and lose on mickey mouse companies with only hot air to keep them afloat! No wonder most of you go skint backing losers that promise millions but deliver hot air instead. RNS Number : 4808X Mercia Technologies PLC 22 February 2017 For immediate release 22 February 2017 Mercia Technologies PLC ("Mercia", "the Company" or the "Group") Two major contracts secured for Northern Powerhouse Funds Mercia (AIM: MERC), the national investment group focused on the creation, funding and scaling of innovative technology businesses with high growth potential from the UK regions, is pleased to announce that it has been successful in its bids, via its wholly-owned subsidiary Enterprise Ventures Limited, to manage two of the British Business Bank's ("BBB") new Northern Powerhouse Investment Funds ("NPIF"). Following a highly competitive procurement process managed by the BBB, the Group has secured GBP108.5million across two mandates; a GBP57.5million equity fund and a GBP51.0million debt fund. The funds will be deployed via Mercia's North of England offices, which will be focused primarily on investing in SMEs in Yorkshire, the Humber and Tees Valley regions, where the Group already has a successful track record of supporting start-up and later stage companies that have high growth potential. These new fund mandate wins represent further strategic progress for Mercia. As a result of the two awards, Mercia has increased its third party funds under management by nearly 50% to over GBP336.5million, which over time will further increase the pipeline of potential direct investment opportunities for the Group. Dr Mark Payton, CEO of Mercia Technologies PLC, said: "We are delighted that, in a highly competitive field, the Group has been selected to manage two Northern Powerhouse Investment Funds. The new funds are strongly aligned with Mercia's 'Complete Capital Solution' and our strategic aim to invest in the UK's underserved regions, supporting the next generation of businesses with high growth potential, where we are already very active. These two new funds will play a leading role in the development of innovative small businesses located in the North of England. The Group is well placed to manage these new mandates having already delivered several notable successes for similar public and private funds, including Blue Prism Group PLC, Optibiotix Health PLC, Xeros Technology Group plc and Concepta PLC. We are looking forward to working with the BBB on the successful delivery of these new mandates over the coming years. Mercia's strategy is to create value for its shareholders and investment clients by finding and funding innovative businesses in the UK regions, initially by investing the third party funds and subsequently by taking direct stakes in 'Emerging Stars' as they successfully scale up.
