DeepVerge PLC – Dublin-based environmental and life science group – Reports that its unaudited revenue for 2022 was roughly GBP17.2 million, slightly below market expectations. Notes that this represents a “significant” year-on-year increase from GBP9.3 million. Explains that it moved progressively from small and medium ticket equipment sales to larger GBP1 million data and AI focused sales through partners. Notes that it moved its Labskin business deeper into data and AI with the creation of Skin Trust Club.

Westmount Energy Ltd – Jersey-headquartered investor in oil and gas industries – Plans to take part in the return of capital offering from Cataleya Energy Corp. It will reduce the number of outstanding common shares in CEC in issue by 16%. Says that prior to the return of capital transaction it held a total of 567,185 shares in CEC, representing roughly 5.3% of CEC shares. “We are very encouraged to see new investment into CEC reflecting confidence that a resumption of drilling on the Kaieteur Block will occur post the October 2023 elective nomination date. It is also heartening to see that this ROC transaction is being executed without tapping CEC’s existing cash balances, thereby allowing CEC to remain very well financed via cash and multiple well carries for future drilling activity,” Executive Chair Gerard Walsh comments.
Frontier IP Group PLC – London-based intellectual property commercialisation company – Appoints David Gladding as chief executive officer. Says that he is experienced in the software industry will help drive both the commercial and technical development of the company’s novel artificial intelligence-based metaheuristics algorithms. Further, he has more than 30 years’ experience at senior levels in software and IT services companies.

Sondrel Holdings PLC – lobal semiconductor designer and supplier – Tapes out an application specific integrated circuits design for an unnamed provider of Edge AI Hardware Accelerator solutions. Confirms that it will proceed with the new product introduction and prototyping phases of the turnkey supply services being provided to the customer. “Passing this key milestone underpins Sondrel’s position as a leading ASIC supplier for advanced designs.

Venture Life Group PLC – Berkshire, England-based self-care product manufacturer and distributor – Secures a range of licence agreements for its internally developed mouth ulcer products with a long term and existing customer for “certain key EU and other markets.” The total license fee to be received is EUR1.4 million, it says. Signs a further two new exclusive long-term agreements in Canada and Vietnam. Signs a long-term distribution agreement for its Pomi-T food supplement in Peru. “The mouth ulcer market is not a target for our own brands, and value is better achieved for us by licensing this to an existing long term partner, which will sell it under their own brand.

Touchstone Exploration Inc – Calgary, Canada-based upstream oil and gas company – Says that its indirectly owned Trinidadian subsidiary Primera Oil & Gas Ltd entered into an asset exchange agreement with Lease Operators Ltd.

With the technical data that we have reviewed on the three licences, we have identified numerous drilling opportunities that can be incorporated into our infrastructure currently being constructed,” CEO & President Paul Baay comments.

The Morningstar Star Rating for Stocks is assigned based on an analyst’s estimate of a stocks fair value. It is projection/opinion and not a statement of fact. Morningstar assigns star ratings based on an analyst’s estimate of a stock’s fair value. Four components drive the Star Rating: (1) our assessment of the firm’s economic moat, (2) our estimate of the stock’s fair value, (3) our uncertainty around that fair value estimate and (4) the current market price. This process culminates in a single-point star rating that is updated daily. A 5-star represents a belief that the stock is a good value at its current price; a 1-star stock isn’t. If our base-case assumptions are true the market price will converge on our fair value estimate over time, generally within three years. Investments in securities are subject to market and other risks. Past performance of a security may or may not be sustained in future and is no indication of future performance.
