Argo Blockchain (LON:ARB) 3p £8.45m


Refocus of its business strategy in light of the continuing difficult trading conditions in the cryptocurrency market as digital currencies face severe price pressure and volatility. As a result of the challenging conditions, the Company has ceased accepting new mining subscriptions and will terminate all existing mining-as-a-service (MaaS) contracts by 1 April 2019.


This shift in strategy follows more than six months of better-than-expected growth achieved by Argo's consumer business since its launch in the summer of last year. Despite continuing demand for the services, the Company is temporarily moving away from MaaS to mining directly for its own account.  The restructuring measures and strategy refocus are expected to reduce the overall cash burn and deliver EBITDA break-even in the second half of 2019. As of Feb 14, the Company's net cash balance amounted to approximately £15m. 


Angus Energy (LON:ANGS) 4.3p £19.39m


£2.2m placing at 4p.

“We recognise that the placing price is significantly below historic share price levels and, whilst we did consider forms of pre-emptive issues to Shareholders which unfortunately haven't been possible within the timeframe, believe, having considered all factors, that this best positions the Company to exploit the value of our asset base as we proceed with our well-defined strategy. I look forward to updating shareholders on this and the progress of our forthcoming Board appointments shortly.”
