London’s AIM Index advanced just over six points on the day, reaching the bell at 974.73, comfortably outperforming the FTSE-100 in terms of percentage gained.

  • Comptoir Group LON:COM +49%
  • Oxford Metrics LON:OMG +28%
  • MediaZest LON:MDZ +13%
  • I-Nexus Global LON:INX -29%
  • Assetco LON:ASTO -17%

Restaurant group Comptoir (featured this morning on our Three Quick Facts) topped the board today, finishing the session some 49% higher. An upbeat set of full year results published this morning proved sufficient to carry momentum in the stock, with investors arguably unfazed by management caution over the unique challenges 2022 seems set to bring.

Oxford Metrics was sitting 28% higher at the closing bell after the company this morning announced it had disposed of its infrastructure asset management division Yotta for £52m. The sale is said to deliver significant value to shareholders whilst also providing increased clarity for the company’s five year growth plan.

A notable mention for MediaZest, up some 13% at the close. A trading update covering the first six months of the financial year was released this morning, in line with expectations and also highlighting that demand was being maintained especially for temporary and event driven technologies as clients get back to engaging with customers at physical events.

I-Nexus Global found itself at the foot of the table today, off some 29% after interim results were released earlier in the day. However, the underlying sentiment here seems bullish so this looks like a case of profit taking off the back of the sharp gains clocked by the company early last week.

AssetCo also had a poor start to the week, reaching the bell in second to last place, off some 17%. These fairly chunky losses appear to have come off the back of some very thin trade and less than a fortnight after the FCA granted change of control over bid target River and Mercantile.
