Fox Marble (FOX) provided an update on the proposed reverse takeover of Eco Buildings Group Limited by the Company. The Company is proposing to acquire the entire issued share capital of Eco Buildings for an aggregate purchase price of £30 million, to be satisfied by the issue of ordinary shares in the Company.

The Brighton Pier Group (PIER) announced its unaudited results for the 52 weeks ended 26 June 2022. The company said it demonstrated the continuing strength of the business model, with record revenues at £40.1 million (2021: £13.5 million), up 25% on the same pre-COVID period in 2019. This has been driven by strong trading across all the Group’s divisions. A consistent gross margin performance, combined with Government support from temporary reductions in VAT and business rates, has enabled the Group to make good progress on maximising earnings and paying down debt. Since the end of the previous financial year the Group has reduced its net debt by 62% to £5.0 million. In other words, it could be said PIER blew the lights out.

Discussions are said to be at an advanced stage and Cellular Goods has conditionally agreed to acquire the Cannaray Subsidiaries for an initial consideration of £14.2 million, consisting of £1 million in cash, together with a number of new Cellular shares, which will make Cannaray a 54% shareholder in the enlarged group.
Caspian Sunrise (CASP) revealed its interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2022, planned acquisition and a dividend update. Revenue was up 155% at $25.6 million (2021: $10.1 million) and more than 2021 as a whole. Profit after tax was up 211% at $7.3 million (2021: $2.4 million).

When the Ukraine war and the associated sanctions end there should be a very material improvement in profitability.
