TRADING UPDATES: Hotel Chocolat fundraises; Argo's Texas crypto asset

Thu, 22nd Jul 2021 20:57

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

----------

Hotel Chocolat Group PLC - Royston, Hertfordshire-based chocolatier - Plans to raise GBP40 million through placing at 355 pence per share. Placing is 2.7% discount to Wednesday's closing price. "The net proceeds of the placing will support the company's future growth by expanding its factory footprint to 160,000 square feet, providing the capacity for the company to increase sales to GBP500 million," the company says.

----------

Argo Blockchain PLC - cryptocurrency miner based in London - Begins construction of 200 megawatt crypto mining facility in US state of Texas. Will be predominantly powered by renewable energy. "The new facility will transform Argo's mining capacity and is expected to be completed in the first half of 2022," Argo says.

Jade Road adds: "The relatively small portion of capital allocated to equity presents reasonable upside opportunities, while simultaneously protecting the company against possible risk through a granular sub-portfolio, whose overall NAV attribution would be less than 20% at the very maximum."
