Diabetic Boot Co is aiming to raise £3.5mln through a share placing

Shares in investment company FastForward Innovations (LON:FFWD) dropped after it confirmed it would not be participating in investee company Diabetic Boot Co Ltd’s £3.5mln share placing.

Diabetic Boot Co is aiming to raise the money through a placing of 2.3mln shares at 2,300p with new shareholders also receiving warrants in the ratio of one warrant for each two new shares issued at 2,645p.

Shares in FastForward, slipped 4.2% on the day but remain more than 17.5% higher on the year so far.

FastForward currently has an interest of 4.9% in DBC but this will fall to 3.72% should it successfully raise the full £3.5mln it is seeking.

These funds are due to be invested by Regent in three conditional tranches, FastForward said.
