Basically no. I can, but I won't.For commercial reasons, all information is public all the time.1. If we do and the companies have other interested investors it can imply we are investing so alter the other investors behaviours and unfairly influence the investment round. This shouldnt happen until we have taken a decision either way. We dont want to to imply a proposam is backed until it actually is.2. If we release info and then don't invest it could be detrimental PR to companies, when it may be no fault of theirs which is not fair. Decisions to invest are not based purely on commercial viability.3. It may encourage other investors to move quicker than are at present which undermines our own investment position on behalf of the community.So while I understand that you want that information, Im saying you wont be given it and its ok if thats frustrating because it is normal practice and being done for good reason Id suggest if you truly want the information because you have a proposal you want to submit that you drop this approach. We do consider how teams manage their brand as part of investment decisions and the current behaviour is commercially naive in a public forum.
