Here are the key ASX small cap winners at lunch Friday February 1:

The ASX Small Ords was down 2.8 points or 0.1 per cent to 2,592.3 at 11.35am AEST.

GOING UP

Entek Energy (ASX:ETE) shares jumped 40 per cent before lunch, up to an intraday high of 1.4c, after it exercised its option to acquire Emerald House, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Elixir Petroleum (ASX:EXR).

“The exercise of the option marks the culmination of an extensive evaluation of potential projects for Entek,” chairman Mark McAuliffe told investors. “Entek is excited to be taking a significant position in one of the most active and prospective oil plays now developing on the North Slope in Alaska.”

DomaCom (ASX:DCL) has entered into an agreement with one of the big four banks in Australia, but it won’t say who.

That was enough to push shares up 27 per cent to 10c. The agreement is four a six-month pilot for fractional property investment using DomaCom’s technology.

Ahalife Holdings (ASX:AHL) has acquired Design Milk. That’s not a move into infant formula, but an acquisition of what it calls a “globally recognised, US-based digital media platform dedicated to modern design”.

The company’s shares jumped 27 per cent to 1.4c on the news.

And shares in Aspermont (ASX:ASP) rose 11 per cent to 1c on an investor update talking up its “rapid” growth and positive cashflow.
