SmallCap Round Up: Panthera Resources, Borders & Southern, Comptoir Group


The AIM All Share Index ticked lower again on Wednesday with no uplift being seen off the back of softer US inflation data. There are concerns that rising wages could undermine the Fed’s ability to reign in prices, leaving the index to sit around three points lower by 3.30pm at 826.46.

  • Panthera Resources +27%
  • Borders & Southern +22%
  • Comptoir Group +12%
  • Unbound -53%
  • Live Company -18%

Panthera Resources [LON:PAT] topped the board by 3.30pm, up 23%. There’s no specific news and trade flow has been far from upbeat, but the stock is finding supporters and there are legal proceedings in play that could have a material impact in favour of the company.

Borders & Southern [LON:BOR] also fared well, adding 22% by copy time. Once again however order flow is in short supply and the spread accounts for almost all of the upside.

A notable mention for restaurant operator Comptoir Group [LON:COM] which added 12% off the back of full year results. Highlights included a 50% uplift in revenues, whilst profitability advanced a similar amount, too, despite the well reported headwinds facing the sector and the wider economy.

Unbound [LON:UBG] was the biggest faller, off some 55% at 3.30pm after a prospective investor pulled out of a £10m funding deal. Given the current trading environment, this is far from ideal so the company has now appointed Interpath Advisory to work alongside the business. Interpath’s typical fees are far from cheap however so if this process doesn’t conclude quickly then problems may lie ahead (Interpath is dealing with the administration of FlyBe, with an update a couple of month ago outlining the fact some senior consultants were being charged out at more than £1000 per hour).

Live Company [LON:LVCG] slipped 20% on the day in the wake of a funding update and news that it had disposed of two underperforming assets. Whilst this sale has generated £350,000, more critically the planned £750,000 investment has now fallen through, evidently rattling the market over the outlook.
