Tern PLC (LON:TERN) saw its shares plunge in mid-morning trading Friday after forecasts for its investee company, Device Authority Limited (DA), were rowed back.

The AIM-listed internet of things investment group said that a previous set of financial forecasts from DA, in which it holds a 56.8% stake, in September 2017 had been contingent on the company raising US$10mln in funds, which had not been completed while DA had also not achieved the announced revenue targets.
