The agreement aims to deliver safe, high-energy density, lower cost lithium silicon sulfur cells for the global electric vehicle, electrical vertical-takeoff-and-landing and drone markets, before progressing to the stationary energy storage market. Together, Gelion and Ionblox will jointly aim to develop high performance, next-generation LiSiS cells.

----------

Mycelx Technologies Corp - Georgia, US-based clean water and air technology - Receives formal purchase order for the Regen contract, valued at USD5.4 million. The order is for the delivery of a Mycelx-produced water treatment system deploying Regen media. Explains that the system will ensure the unnamed producer is able to reliably discharge clean water overboard in compliance with strict environmental regulations. Expects equipment to be operational in the second half of 2024.

----------

TruFin PLC - London-based financial technology holding company for niche lenders and early payment providers - Says subsidiary, Playstack Ltd, has entered letter of intent to sell intellectual property and assets of its augmented reality and gamification AdTech platform, Interact, to VCI Global Ltd. Notes that whilst transaction terms are yet to be confirmed, any cash consideration is "not expected to be significant" in the context of the wider company. TruFin will provide further updates as appropriate.

----------

UK Oil & Gas PLC - London-based exploration and production company focused on UK and Turkey - Says that the Pinarova joint venture's order of more powerful seven-inch perforating guns arrived in-country last week via airfreight into Istanbul. The new guns will be deployed over the Germik/Hoya section of the site, where strong oil odours at surface were recorded over a 12-hour period during drilling and mobile light oil was recovered from the mud pit.

----------

Dunedin Enterprise Investment Trust PLC - Edinburgh-based UK and overseas companies' investor - Says regulatory approval granted for the realisation of Premier Hytemp, a manufacturer and supplier of engineered metal solutions.

Following this realisation, it has remaining unlisted investments valued at GBP7.8 million, cash balances of GBP23.3 million, and other net assets of GBP2.9 million. Explains that the board and its advisers are exploring whether to wind-up the company and return cash to shareholders, including the proceeds of the Premier Hytemp realisation, by way of a members' voluntary liquidation.
