The AIM-traded firm said the placing was with a new investor for 200,000 new ordinary shares, at a price of $10 each.

"The proceeds of the placing ... will be used for working capital purposes and to undertake further investments."

Craven House noted that the placing shares represented 7.01% of its existing outstanding issued share capital.

It said application would be made for admission of the 200,000 new ordinary shares to trading on AIM, which was expected to take place at 0800 GMT on or around 24 February.
