The announcement itself contained no meaningful information, but more importantly, it coincided with a promotional campaign for VGTL with a total budget of well over $100 thousand which is a lot considering the fact that back then, the pumpers were spreading their optimism for what was basically a shell company. The results were pretty predictable: the ticker did jump when the increased demand pushed the price up, but the support was rather short-lived and it was soon back where it started. read more

Quite a lot of buying volume ensued and the ticker registered an incredible run reaching as high as $1.36 per share. If you've been around penny stock promotions for long enough, you'll know that pumps tend to bite back and violent backlashes often come without warning.
