Thu, 16th Sep 2021 14:36

(Correcting that the updates were issued on Thursday)

(Alliance News) - The following is a round-up of updates by London-listed companies, issued on Thursday and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

Kier Group PLC - Sandy, Bedfordshire-based construction and infrastructure services - Revenue in the year ended June 30 falls 4.7% from the previous year, to GBP3.26 billion from GBP3.42 billion. Swings to pretax profit of GBP5.6 million from a loss of GBP225.3 million. Revenue fell because the company exited non-core, low-margin and loss-making contracts. Order book of GBP7.7 billion covers 83% of expected revenue in the 2022 financial year. New medium-term plan targets revenue between GBP4.0 billion and GBP4.5 billion, and an adjusted operating profit margin of 3.5%. Current trading is in line with expectations and guidance for financial 2022 remains unchanged, "notwithstanding potential inflationary pressures and the impact of increased national insurance contributions."

----------

Sound Energy PLC - oil and gas explorer in Italy and Morocco - Pretax loss in first half of 2021 widens to GBP5.8 million from GBP380,000. Continues "strategy of progressing towards becoming a revenue generating company," having achieved "key milestones" including buying an asset in eastern Morocco and signing a liquefied natural gas sales agreement with Afriquia Gaz in the second half to date. "With important catalysts to come in the near term, I look forward to updating shareholders further," Executive Chair Graham Lyon says.

----------

Foresight Solar Fund Ltd - investor in solar panels and batteries - Net asset value per share rises to 98.0 pence on June 30, from 95.8p on December 31, thanks to "a strong recovery in power prices forecasts in the short and medium term." Swings to pretax profit of GBP34.2 million from a loss of GBP26.7 million. Declares 1.745p per share second interim dividend. Company "continues to review an attractive pipeline of solar and battery assets."

----------

Pretax loss narrows to GBP2.0 million from GBP9.4 million. Trading in July and August has been slightly above breakeven in terms of earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation. Financial 2022 Ebitda will be materially ahead of current market expectations because of the company's lower cost base.

----------

Artisanal Spirits PLC - Edinburgh-based whisky subscriptions - Revenue in the first half of 2021 increases 20% year-on-year to GBP7.9 million from GBP6.6 million, "slightly ahead of management's expectations."

Swings to pretax loss of GBP632,000 from a profit of GBP18,000. Distribution costs were higher because of shipping container shortages, which are expected to continue for the rest of the year. Commercialisation of product lines, and substantial sales growth, is now expected in the "very near term".

----------

Enwell Energy PLC - oil and gas producer in Ukraine - Revenue in the first half of 2021 rises 66% year-on-year to USD41.1 million from USD24.7 million.
