PeHUB has removed a news brief about Regent Capital BCKP Ltd (Canada) until it can confirm the authenticity of information contained in a press release, which stated that Regent had raised 5.3 billion euros ($7.2 billion).
PeHUB was unable to reach either of the individuals listed on the press release. Someone who answered the phone at one of the numbers denied any connection to Regent.
After investigating the matter, public relations media service MarketWired, which distributed the news, retracted the press release.
