AIM movers: Revolution Bars fundraising and ex-dividends

Trading in Revolution Bars Group (LON: RBG) shares after it published interims to December 2023 and plans to raise up to £12.5m via a placing and seven-for-eight open offer late on Wednesday. Excluding a disposal gain and other exceptionals, the bars operator went from profit to loss due to higher finance costs. An impairment review will be undertaken at the end of the financial year. Net debt is £20m. The additional cash is required for a restructuring because the current money will be short of money by the autumn. A formal sale process has been launched as an alternative to the restructuring. The fundraising is at 1p/share. The share price is one-third ahead at 1.6p.
