The fund agreed to inject money into Woodbois, then known as Obtala, back in January of this year. It bought 40mln shares at 5p a pop, giving it a stake of around 12% in the company, and the same number of warrants which, if exercised, would double its holding in the company.

Shares in Woodbois currently trade at 7.25p.
