----------

Marlowe PLC - London-based safety services and software provider - Acquires environmental safety testing and consultancy business Santia Ltd for a GBP4.5 million consideration. This includes GBP4.3 million initial payment and a deferred GBP200,000 to be paid pending the achievement of certain integration objectives. Plans to settle acquisition with its existing cash resources. Says the acquisition offers "attractive synergies" with its water and air hygiene platform, WCS Group. Notes that Santia produced adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of GBP800,000 on revenue of GBP10.6 million in 2019.

Gaming Realms PLC - London-based developer of mobile betting games - Launches content in Pennsylvania, US, after obtaining an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer Licence in the state. Takes its first Slingo game live in Pennsylvania with BetMGM, with more games to follow. Notes agreements with a number of operators, including Rush Street Interactive in Pennsylvania. Says the launch follows launches with operators in New Jersey and Michigan. Executive Chair Michael Buckley says: "We are delighted to be launching our Slingo Originals games in Pennsylvania, which is one of the three leading US states for iGaming and where gambling revenue increased over 60% year-on-year in July 2021."

Avation PLC - passenger aircraft leasing company based in Singapore - Repays outstanding export credit agency insured loans associated with eight ATR 72 aircraft previously on lease to Virgin Australia Airlines. Says it repaid the loans with released deposits held by the export credit agencies and a new commercial bank financing package. Its financing package is backed by the leases of three ATR 72 aircraft to Heviliftm, the company notes. Executive Chair Jeff Chatfield adds: "The export credit loans associated with the Virgin Australian aircraft have now been refinanced and retired. It is pleasing that commercial bank aircraft lending appears to be reopening following the disruption caused by Covid-19".

Under the renewed contract Pentest will continue to provide vulnerability assessment and penetration testing services to an unnamed global technology corporation, the company says.

----------

Eqtec PLC - Cork, Ireland-based gasification and engineering company - Agrees to extend the option period with Rotunda Group Ltd and its subsidiary Shankley Biogas Ltd for the Southport Hybrid Energy Park project up to September 30.

Open Orphan PLC - London-based pharmaceutical services company - Notes positive result in its RSV Human Challenge Study conducted by its subsidiary hVIVO. Says the Phase 2 double-blinded, placebo controlled trial was testing Barvarian Nordic AS's respiratory syncytial virus vaccine candidate, MVA-BN RSV. Adds that the study of 51 healthy adult volunteers indicated a "significant reduction in viral load in vaccinated subjects" when compared to those given a placebo. Respiratory syncytial virus affects the respiratory tract of children and at-risk older adults, the company says.
