Good Day

I enjoy reading your articles and have been checking it a few times a day.

I am just curious about Pelikan disclosure last evening. It's under close period. How come the disclosure took such a long time?

Also, why do you think that Pelikan purchase Konsortium? It's in debt . Would it not be better that they purchase their own shares?

Just trying to tap ur thinking.

Thanks again for updates
