Indeed, what will the IRV share price be. With a 95% loss and being asked to fork out another £18k, it seems that equity holders are being called upon to do an awful lot of the heavy lifting.
Mind you, this is the initial crap offer. A better one was outlined in The Times a few days ago. Think I'll vote against, who knows I might tip the balance.
Of course, we must remember that capital doesn't matter. If I carry on at this rate there won't be any to matter
P.S. to my previous comment, as I read www.gov.uk re capital gains/losses (though the page is undated), one has only 4 years to register the loss (which I did when each occurred) but they can be carried forward and used indefinitely. If anyone knows differently, please advise.
