I've got the option of buying further Iocom shares at a discounted price, prior to the acquisition. The discount isn't huge - share price is currently 0.055 - discount purchase price is 0.05

Dilution of capital is always something to think about.

My catch-22 is that, now that the share-price is low, it might actually be a good time to buy and re-coup some of the losses,
A good way to judge this, no matter what your experience, is to say to yourself is investing in Iocom the best use of my capital? Try not to think that you need to recover you losses from this stock.You got hammered either take the loss & move on or hold as you've lost most your original capital already, accept it & move on.

Don't make the other mistake of selling your winners & holding your losers, no one is right all the time sometimes you gotta bail but when you are right you wanna take full advantage. I always buy in 3 or 4 segments which tends to reduce your risk significantly.

Hey think positive your gonna clean up with your future investments, thus Iocom could give you something more as a tax deduction.

Sometimes you gotta pay if you wanna play.

IMO
