Harvest Minerals (LON: HMI) has been hit by weaker fertiliser demand, which has continued in July. So far this year, 36,000t has been supplied. On top of this there are advanced sales of 33,000t that were not recognised in 2022. The second half should be the busiest for the Brazil-based company, but fertiliser orders are still being delayed because of low crop prices. The 2023 invoiced sales target has been cut from 120,000t to 70,000t. The share price slumped 30.8% to 2.25p.

Serinus Energy (LON: SENX) reports that lower oil and gas prices mean that interim revenues slumped from $29.3m to $8.9m. There was a $400,000 cash inflow. Net cash was $2.5m at the end of June 2023. A full year loss is forecast. The share price declined 16.2% to 3.1p.

Waste heat recovery technology developer Inspirit Energy Holdings (LON: INSP) says that its Inspirit Charger unit for automotive and marine uses can enhance performance of some commercial engines by up to 30%.

Fusion Antibodies (LON: FAB) is on track to realise annual savings of £2.2m. Some directors will have a portion of their remuneration paid in shares rather than cash. The share price fell 3.57% to 6.75p.
