AIM - LOSERS

----------

Fulcrum Utility Services Ltd, down 71% at 0.24p, 12-month range 0.2p-8.7p. The provider of utility infrastructure services reports a disappointing set of annual results and says it plans to cancel its AIM listing. In the financial year that ended March 31, revenue falls 18% year-on-year to £50.6 million from £61.8 million, as pretax loss widens to £25.7 million from £14.2 million. It attributes the widened loss to ‘significant’ challenges, including a hit from the UK energy crisis. The firm proposes to cancel its AIM listing, due to the ‘limited prospects’ of raising additional equity financing in light of its current investor base, the limited trading of its shares on AIM. It also cites the costs of the AIM listing, as week as the management time, and the legal and regulatory burden of being a quoted company. Will let shareholders vote on the proposal at a general meeting on September 26. The cancellation proposal will need at least 75% of shareholders to vote in favour, and 57% of its shareholders have already agreed to vote for it.
