Agree as regards DPD sale, not defending board but raising money in UK for technology companies is not the easiest. Rights issue would have been expensive and drawn out, placing would probably have been at same price as last years 0.003 so would have not gone down to well with shareholders. Needing finance quickly for expanding beacons in shopping malls and with no sale of DPD, found themselves between a rock and a hard place, so Darwin probably their best bet IMO.
