AIM movers: Time Finance gains momentum and Midatech Pharma to leave AIM

Small business finance provider Time Finance (LON: TIME) appears to be gaining momentum. Third quarter trading figures have sparked a full year pre-tax profit upgrade by Cenkos from £3.2m to £3.6m. In the latest nine month period the pre-tax profit is £3m, up from £1.1m, so this is an achievable forecast. Arrears are low at 6% and the gross loan book is worth £157.2m. The share price moved 15.7% higher at 25.8p.

Pantheon Resource (LON: PANR) has recovered some of its loss from earlier in the week following disappointing flow test results from the Alkaid #2 well in Alaska. The share price improved by 21% to 28.54p. The share price has still nearly halved this week.

Currently, one ADS represents 25 shares and after the consolidation it will represent five shares. The company’s name will be changed to Biodexa Pharmaceuticals.

Redx Pharma (LON: REDX) has revealed topline data for the biliary tract cancer module of the RXC004 PORCUPINE2 phase two clinical trial.
