Semiconductors developer Sondrel (LON: SND) has clawed back some of the share price loss in the past six months. The share price jumped 114.3% to 12.75p. Earlier this week, Sondrel revealed that it had received £1.5m form the customer where payments had been delayed. This has enabled deferred payments to be made by Sondrel. New business opportunities are being negotiated. Even so, Sondrel needs to raise more cash before the end of March to put it on a sound financial footing.

The share price increased 9.15% to 0.775p.
Advanced coatings services provider Hardide (LON: HDD) traded in line with expectations with revenues of £5.5m in the year to September 2023, but the most recent quarter has been weak. Demand from the oil and gas sector has been hit by destocking. Currently, this year’s revenues are expected to be flat and Hardide will continue to lose money. Interim chief executive Steve Paul joins this month. Hardide wants to raise £1m for working capital, so it is not surprising that the share price dipped 23.1% to a new low of 7.5p.
Sanderson Design Group (LON: SDG) achieved pre-tax profit expectations of £12m in the year to January 2024, partly due to licence agreements. Brand sales fell with the UK down 11%.
