  • Best of the Best down 31%

Mercantile Ports & Logistics [LON:MPL]  was the second biggest riser, adding 22% off the back of a restructured debt facility and board appointment this morning. The stock was notable for elevated volumes of trade.

Kropz [LON:KRPZ] was sitting at the foot of the board running into the close with news of equity draw down facilities evidently weighing on sentiment. Shares sat 39% lower on vastly higher that usual volumes.

Best of the Best [LON:BOTB] issued full year results today and despite showing some solid improvements in revenues, shares still slumped. The company has had a bumper year but the return to work and an end to lockdowns seems to be taking a toll on prospects, leaving shares 31% lower at the close.
