Market prices in £9.4m value to a contract that is worth peanuts
Thursday 26 Jan 2017 Author: Daniel Coatsworth

Investors were ecstatic when Fitbug (FITB:AIM) won a one-year contract with an Asian financial services company with 14,000 staff for its health monitoring kit, prompting the share price to rise 467% in a day (18 Jan) from 0.164p to 0.93p.

Its market value went from £2m to £11.4m; that’s until the shares were suspended pending an announcement.

The following day Fitbug issued a statement that said the contract was only worth £60,000, prompting the shares to lose nearly all the previous day’s gains.
