We appear to be looking at a busy period ahead for Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) with another important RNS to end the week. The company has said that the 5-ply version of its Pro-Larva anti-viral mask, developed with Volz Filters UK Ltd and has been approved by the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency. This new material has passed the proof-of-concept stage and Volz and P2F are now looking at how this could be commercialised in heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.

Shares of the stock are up over 60% this year and the company said it notes the recent price movement of its shares and press comment in Nigeria regarding the possibility of Midwestern Oil and Gas reversing into the Company. San Leon confirmed it is in preliminary discussions with Midwestern about acquiring Midwestern’s indirect interest in the OML 18 oil and gas block in Nigeria Any transaction would involve San Leon acquiring the outstanding shares not already owned by San Leon in relation to Midwestern Leon Petroleum, and the acquisition by San Leon of the outstanding shares in MLPL not already owned by San Leon would constitute a reverse takeover. Shares in San Leon are now suspended as we await further developments.
