KERBOOM: The Chill Brands placing and news of a disposable vaping ban, killing almost 100% of sales, just hours later

By Tom Winnifrith | Saturday 27 January 2024

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

For more than a week Chill Brands (CHLL) tried to raise between £3 and £4 million in a placing. On Thursday evening the final placing letters arrived with advisor and broker Allenby and the placing closed at £1.2 million. The placees were locked in, a disingenuous RNS was prepared, and folks went to bed. Within hours there was a bombshell report in the Daily Telegraph which other publications were able to verify as accurate. The company’s entire product range will soon be banned. Oddly there has been no RNS about this.
