The Contract scope comprises the design and build of works associated with the port handling facilities including; product storage facilities for approximately 250,000 tonnes of product, ship loading equipment, ship outload infrastructure, and the final product screening facility.  The Contract price, which will be incurred in GBP and EUR, is on a lump sum basis and is in line with the Company's capital re-estimate announced on 6 September 2018 [up to $538m]. The proposed schedule for the works fits within the Company's overall Project schedule.


Xeros Technology (LON:XSG) 43p £42.65m


“The developer and provider of water saving technologies with multiple commercial applications, has signed an agreement with Eastern Laundry Systems Inc ('ELS'). ELS has been granted the exclusive rights to take over the servicing of Xeros' commercial laun­dry customers in nine states across the East Coast of the US, including New York, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The Group's commercial laundry business is branded Hydrofinity.


ELS, based in Taunton, Massachusetts is a large full-service distributor of commercial laundry equipment, parts and chemistry to both the on-premise laundry and laundromat markets.  It will now service all Hydrofinity's existing and future customers in the region with significant savings accruing to Xeros. ELS will also continue to stock and sell Hydrofinity commercial washing machines.


This agreement reflects the Hydrofinity strategy to reduce its physical presence in markets and progressively move to a licensing model.”


Trinity Exploration (LON:TRIN) 15.75p £60.49m


“The independent E&P company focused on Trinidad and Tobago, announces that, as operator, it has submitted the first phase of its Field Development Plan ("FDP") for the TGAL Area, located on the Galeota Block, offshore the East Coast of Trinidad, to the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries ("MEEI"). This FDP is the first phase of a potential wider step-out development moving across the Galeota anticline to fully develop the reserves potential from the large volumes of oil in place (circa 700 mmbbls).”


The First Phase FDP contemplates producing 14.5 mmbbbls (gross) through the drilling of up to 10 development wells, with first oil being produced by H1 2022 and production projected to peak at around 5,800 bopd by year 2;


At Final Investment Decision these resources would be reclassified as 2P reserves, potentially resulting in an over 40% uplift to Trinity's current 2P reserves of 23.2 mmbbls


MySQUAR (LON:MYSQ) 0.29p £2.53m


“The Company announces that it has requested the suspension of trading on AIM of the ordinary shares of no par value in the capital of the Company with effect from 7.30am today pending the clarification of the Company's financial position. This follows a review of the account into which the proceeds were paid of the bond issues announced on 7thMarch 2018 and 20th June 2018.


The Company's cash balances are very low and it has sought to draw down on the $1m facility from Rising Dragon Singapore Pte Limited without success.  As a consequence there is material uncertainty regarding the Company's working capital position.


The Company has also withdrawn the application for admission to trading on AIM of the 171,428,571 Shares issued by way of a placing announced on 30 Oct 2018.”

Most notably, the service has seen its first revenue derived directly from executive members.  Previously, all revenue through the platform has come from recruiters and, while core services will remain free for executives, the ability to generate revenues from enhanced membership services will enable the Group to deliver faster revenue growth.


The new services come against a backdrop of accelerating membership growth in October.  Approximately 7,000 new members joined the platform in the month, an increase of more than 30% on Sept signups.  Sept - which had previously been the best month for the service - was itself a 30% increase on Aug.”

These delayed CrossRail deliveries will benefit the current financial year, which has started encouragingly with a major contract win.  LPA Lighting Systems has been awarded (subject to contract) the upgrade for the lighting on London's Central and Waterloo & City lines rolling stock.  The contract, valued at over £4m, will begin to benefit the second half of the financial year and after a pause will run through to 2023, with an ongoing through-life support contract to 2043.”
