Markets were thrown into turmoil on Friday after the UK took the unprecedented step of voting to leave the European Union. Mark Dampier, research director at Hargreaves Lansdown PLC (LON:HL) tells Proactive Investors “generally speaking it has been pretty chaotic in the markets” adding that he thinks investors had priced in a ‘remain’ vote. “The markets have just had to do a full 360 turn”, he says, adding that “markets don’t like surprises, and they got the biggest shock of their lives at around 4am”. Dampier compares Friday to two other events, Black Monday, in 1987 and leaving ERM in 1992, but says it will likely have a slower and more prolonged reaction. He adds that he believes the country will “muddle through, but unfortunately that muddle through will be a bit messy for a while”.

Cloud and mobile focused investing company Tern PLC (LON:TERN) has successfully completed the acquisition of the assets and businesses of Flexiant Limited, the research and cloud management company. Angus Forrest, chief executive, tells Proactive Investors the company has bought the “multi-Cloud management” division of the company, which he describes as a “growing opportunity”. The company has bought two units, the research unit and the cloud management unit – known as Concerto. “We think we will drive the sale and market opportunities for concerto and we will enable the research division to win more contracts”, Forrest says.

On Friday, the UK took the unprecedented step of voting to leave the European Union, swiftly followed by the announcement that Prime Minister David Cameron is to resign in the coming months. Shortly after the news broke, the pound initially plummeting to a 30-year low, but recuperated some of its losses to sit £1.38 to the dollar by lunch. Simon Smith, chief economist at foreign exchange broker FX Pro tells Proactive Investors “the reaction of sterling at least is reflected the fact that the world’s not ended, the sun is still shining, the economy is still ticking along and nothing is going to change for at least the next few months”. He says the pound could be “entering a new paradigm”, or a new era, having trading in a 17.5 figure range, which he adds is “unprecedented”.

Neill Ricketts, chief executive of Versarien Plc (LON:VRS,) is confident the tie up with Airbus supplier CT Engineering will help his graphene-based business grow over the course of a long term relationship. “There’s no doubt in my mind that CT engineering are well placed having this international base of really, really good clients for us to be able to develop alongside them.” CT specialises in carbon fibre technology and will use Versarien’s expertise in graphene to formulate the new range. The companies are in close proximity to each other allowing both the design and engineering teams to work together easily on a range of products for the aerospace and automotive industries.

I-Minerals Inc (CVE:IMA) is focused on the development of two unique deposits on its Helmer-Bovill Project in north-central Idaho, which has four sets minerals – halloysite, kaolin, quartz and feldspar. Each can be used in a variety of sectors and goods, and Thomas Conway, president and chief executive, tells Proactive Investors “we think we are very well poised and have a very unique set of minerals that will go into a 21st century businesses”. “This is quite unique as normally you don’t have industrial mineral operations that have that”, he adds.

Greatland Gold PLC (LON:GGP) said this week that its field operations team is now on site at its Bromus nickel project, ready to prepare four locations for drilling. The drill tests will help Greatland determine how much nickel is present at the project, as well as the nature of the bedrock conductors (an area of highly conductive material in the bedrock). Callum Baxter, an executive director, speaks to Proactive along with non-executive director Gervaise Heddle, who says “as a company we are entering into a much more proactive phase of exploration and development”. He adds that the company has cash to explore other potential assets, and Baxter adds “the right opportunities in our space are early-stage exploration opportunities where we can make a discovery and lift the share price significantly.”

The upgrade to 10-gigabit Ethernet will allow the Kenya Education Network (KENET) “to provide a greater range of services to its members”, the company said. Ariel Efrati, chief executive of Telco Systems, tells Proactive Investors the company is also working on projects in the US and Australia, adding that he “hopes to be announcing more of these” (projects), as it is providing a service that is seeing a “high demand” at the moment. “We are working on multiple targets” he adds, with a focus on signing “tier-one” deals.

Chief executive Johnson says “today we released a cracker of an RNS with lots of intersection of high grade copper, high grade silver and some astonishingly high grade figures.” “We are super excited in the business and hoping that the results flow thick and fast”, he adds.

The full commercial roll-out of digital TV services provider Mirada Plc’s (LON:MIRA) Iris multi-screen solution for Mexican telecoms giant izzi Telecom is kicking off. Izzi’s roll-out of its new TV box, which brings together a number of different service providers as well as allowing customers to control their viewing from a number of different devices, will be accompanied by an extensive marketing campaign and its four million subscribers will be able to take the new services via izzi’s distribution channels from 4 July. Jose Luis Vazquez, chief executive, tells Proactive Investors “Mirada is central on [izzi’s] TV strategy,” adding that “they are using our technology, our platform, and what they have now is completely ahead of what has been ever deployed in this market”. He says the company will receive between US$3 and US$5 per box, noting that “this is a defining moment in terms of revenue for the company”.

Richard Hunter head of research at Wilson King says he is keen to see if Tesco PLC (LON:TSCO) can maintain its turnaround ahead of the trading update on Thursday. “It was a previous darling of the UK market, but it had a number of problems … including an admission itself that it had taken its eye off the ball in terms of the UK customer,” he adds. The supermarket giant is expected to report two consecutive quarters of sales growth for the first time in over five years. “There’s something of a leap of faith required of investors at the moment,” Hunter tells Proactive Investors, and the lack of forward looking statements has been troubling. CEO Dave Lewis and investors should be worried about the risk of competition, he says, with new rivals in the form of convenience stores and online growing by the day.

Strategic Minerals PLC (LON:SML) chairman Alan Broome tells Proactive Investors about the early indications from the Hanns Camp drill programme. “We drilled some holes and intersected some nickel sulphide which is exactly what we were looking for. The next step is to do some very detailed analysis” he says. Broome also explains the rationale behind the firm's three-pronged approach to adding new assets to the portfolio. “We are fairly fortunate as a junior company that we already have a producing asset in the U.S that actually pays for our overheads" he says. Broome adds: “So we are looking for bulk material opportunities, rare earths and metals with a five year indicated improvement in demand and price: nickel, tin & tungsten.”

Summit Therapeutics (LON:SUMM NASDAQ:SMMT) Senior Director Richard Pye tells Proactive Investors that their treatment Ridinilazole can trump current treatments for Clostridium Difficile Infection (CDI). "We think this can really alter the treatment paradigm" he says. Pye says the current treatments for CDI are actually quite good at killing the infection but they then cause more damage to the patient's microbiome - bacteria in the gut that fights infections. "We are able to both treat the initial infection and allow the patient to have their microbiome providing natural protection against developing recurrent disease" he says.
