FTSE 250 movers: Indivior surges but Countryside slides on placing

Fri, 1st Dec 2017 14:19

(ShareCast News) - London's FTSE 250 was flat at 19,957.08 in quiet afternoon trade on Friday.

Indivior surged after receiving approval from the US drug regulator to market its once-monthly injectable treatment for moderate to severe opioid use disorder, which analysts believe could lift company sales north of $1bn.

The US Food and Drug Administration overnight gave its approval for what Indivior has branded Sublocade, an extended-release form of buprenorphine, meaning it is expected to be available to patients in the US in the first quarter of 2018.

ZPG was in the black after the Zoopla and PrimeLocation owner completed the acquisition of Calcasa, a Dutch provider of automated property valuations and statistical market analysis.

On the downside, housebuilder and regeneration partner Countryside Properties was under the cosh after private equity firm Oaktree Capital - its largest shareholder - sold a 15% stake in the group. Oaktree sold 67.5m shares in the company at 340p each through an accelerated bookbuild, amid strong demand.

Royal Mail was hit by a downgrade to 'sell' from 'hold' at Deutsche Bank.

"We think it will be more difficult for RMG to modernise and take costs out of the business in an environment where GDP growth is weak, there is low visibility on business confidence post Brexit, generally higher wage bill pressures and an on-going mediation process with the unions over pay and pensions," it said.

Redefine was also in the red as it said it was changing its name and rebranding to RDI REIT P.L.C., an acronym for Real Estate Diversified Income REIT. It said the new brand is "synonymous with the company's intention to become the UK's leading income focused REIT delivering superior, sustainable and growing income" for its shareholders.
