AIM movers: Tintra extracts itself from financing deal and Alba Mineral Resources raises cash

Financials business Tintra (LON: TNT) is settling its share placement deal with Fintech Leaders Fund. The $3m received last December will be repaid with a premium. That totals £3.03m. The two sides fell out in May, and this ends the relationship. The share price recovered 27.7% to 120p.

Consumer products supplier Supreme (LON: SUP) improved 2022-23 revenues by 19% t £155.6m, but lower gross margin meant that underlying pre-tax profit was 13% lower at £15.2m. Destocking in the lighting division hit profit. Cash generated left net cash of £3.2m at the end of March 2023. This year’s trading is better than expected with underlying EBITDA likely to be at least £1m better than expected, suggesting nearly £24m, against £19.4m last year. Supreme has signed a deal to distribute vaping brands ElfBar and Lost Mary, which could generate £2m of EBITDA this year. The share price improved 11.5% to 116.5p.
