WA-based private equity firm Azalea Investments spent $77,500 in a placement for underwater drone maker UUV Aquabotix (ASX:UUV).

With the company’s long, spectacular decline from 20c to 0.2c, the purchase took Azalea’s stake to 18 per cent.

The share purchase came only a few days after the company revealed it was being sued by the licensor of its technology over an alleged breach of the licence agreement.

Paradice Investment Management accumulated a 5.91 per cent stake in mining and earthmoving equipment rental firm Emeco Holdings (ASX:EHL).

Perennial Value Management’s purchases this week included shares in gold miner Aurelia Metals (ASX:AMI) and Ireland-domiciled medtech stock Oneview Healthcare (ASX:ONE).

Regal Funds Management increased its holding in gold producer Red 5 (ASX:RED), while Perpetual took another leap of faith in women’s’ fashion retailer Mosaic Brands (ASX:MOZ) despite a horror couple of months for the firm.

New Zealand-based Pie Funds Management topped up its holdings in IT play Citadel Group (ASX:CGL) to 8.45 per cent.
