Merchant House said that £150,000 of the £761,500 it is expecting to pocket has not been received by the company. Not surprisngly, the 214.3m ordinary shares issued and allotted to the later payer(s) have not been delivered, and won't be until the company receives its money.
The company is continuing to pursue these monies and a further announcement will be made in due course.
