yes, at best it smacks of desperation. If they had any confidence in the market, I would have thought they would back it themselves until commision starts rolling in from sold units. Money up-front shouts lack of confidence in their ability to sell, and how many £1,000 upfront payments might equate to ”oh well, lets wind it up anyway” and goodbye to all those who have put money up front……..try getting it back now!!!
I wouldn’t have thought most would touch it with a barge pole?
