Sareum Holdings* (LON:SAR) 0.7p £18.69m


Sierra Oncology (the licence holder for Chk1 inhibitor SRA737) updated in relation to presentations of preliminary clinical data from its Phase 1/2 SRA737 monotherapy study and its Phase 1/2 study of SRA737 in combination with low dose gemcitabine (SRA737+LDG) at the upcoming 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). SRA737 monotherapy: the MTD (maximum tolerated dose) was 1000 mg/day and based on overall tolerability and PK, the recommended Phase 2 dose is 800 mg/day. The successful enrolment of prospectively-selected genetically-defined subjects will allow response data to be correlated with genomic profiles hypothesized to confer sensitivity to Chk1 inhibition. The combination of LDG and SRA737 has  been well tolerated. This first-in-human clinical study provides proof-of-concept that sub-therapeutic LDG effectively potentiates SRA737. This novel replication stress-targeted therapy warrants further evaluation in genetically pre-defined solid tumors.


MySale Group (LON:MYSL) 11p £18.8m


MySale Group, the leading international online retailer, announced that the transaction to sell the trade and assets of the website cocosa.co.uk ("the Business") to Brandalley UK Limited, as previously announced on 3 May 2019, has now been completed.

Whilst current trading continues to be very challenging the group remains focused on reducing its cost base and through its 'ANZ First' strategy, utilise the group's scale, resources and market position in the region to deliver the e-commerce platform of choice to domestic and international brands.


Seeing Machines (LON:SEE) 3.27p £108.5m


“The advanced computer vision technology company that designs AI-powered operator monitoring systems to improve transport safety, provided a comprehensive update on its Fleet business.


The success of the Fleet business and its implementation of Guardian 24/7 monitoring services is fundamental to Seeing Machines. At 30 April 2019, more than 1,500 Guardian units have been installed since 31 Jan 2019, with over 14,500 units now installed in vehicles globally. This recent momentum has strengthened as the Guardian installation rate continues to accelerate with expectations that the Group will reach 16,000 Guardian units connected by 30 June 2019 and approximately 27,000 Guardian units connected by June 2020, which the Group remains on track to achieve.”

Consequently, the Board is confident of meeting market expectations for the year ending Dec 2019.”

Recurring revenues continue to benefit from the Group's unique, differentiated, High Usage Programme ('HUP') business model. At a geographical level, the US revenues, which the Board expect to be the main strategic driver of future growth, were up 69% in the quarter compared with Q1 last year. LiDCO UK revenues, excluding 3rd party products, were up 12% for the quarter.”


IndigoVision Group (LON:IND) 180p £13.56m


"IndigoVision reports that, in the four months to 27 April 2019, trading was in line with market expectations.


As in previous years, sales are expected to be weighted towards the second half of the year and the nature of our business is such that the precise timing of our orders is difficult to predict. Nevertheless, the current indicators support the Board's target to return the Company to profitability in the current year.”

Aeorema has seen strong trading in the second half of the reporting period to date, with record revenues generated that will exceed those expected by the market.
