North River said it was in discussions with a replacement Nomad, but there was no guarantee that a replacement would be found before the end of December 4th.

"In accordance with AIM Rule One, if a company ceases to have a Nominated Adviser, trading in the company's shares will be suspended," the firm warned.

"If within one month of that suspension a company has failed to appoint a replacement Nominated Adviser, the company's admission to AIM will be cancelled."

Shares fell 8.3% by 9:30 following the the news.
