NetScientific PLC (LON:NSCI) has said it is unaware of any reason behind a 247% surge in its share price on Wednesday to 12.5p.
The medical research investor added that despite the increase the shares were still at discount to their price prior to 20 December when it announced a strategic review that included options to delist from AIM and taking the company private, although at the start of March the firm said more than 30% of shareholders indicated they would vote against these options.
