Anexo Group 131p  £152m (ANX.L)

The specialist integrated credit hire and legal services provider announced the formation of a new team within its legal services division, Bond Turner, to deal with claims arising from housing disrepair. The HDR team is currently engaged in almost 1,600 cases and this figure is expected to rise substantially during 2022. Housing trends indicate a move away from owner occupation towards either private or social rental. 12% of social housing dwellings and 23% of private rented dwellings fail to meet the Decent Homes Standard. 5% of social housing dwellings and 13% of private rented dwellings suffer from a Category 1 Hazard, defined as damp and mould growth.

Applied Graphene Materials 25p  £16.1m (AGM.L)

The producer of specialty graphene nanoplatelet dispersions, announced the issuance of UK Patent No. GB2585648, covering the use of Graphene Nanoplatelets in water-based anti-corrosion protective coatings applications. Graphene nanoplatelets have been shown to provide highly effective barrier properties, enhancing corrosion prevention in solvent-based paints through the use of high-performance dispersions. The introduction of Graphene nanoplatelets into water-based paints has been historically problematic due to the challenges in producing effective and stable dispersions for water-based systems. AGM’s range of water-based dispersions have now been demonstrated to enhance corrosion performance in such systems. This technology development enables primer systems to achieve ISO 12944 category C3 or C4 corrosion rating performance where typical environments include urban and industrial atmospheres, moderate sulphur dioxide pollution, or coastal areas with low to moderate salinity. This latest patent reflects AGM’s commitment to continuous development as a leading innovator in graphene dispersion and application technology.

Bluejay Mining 9.1p  £88.4m (JAY.L)

Bluejay  announced the completion of processing of the bulk sample dispatched to Canada from Dundas in September 2019. The pilot plant was placed on care and maintenance in March last year following the outbreak of COVID-19. The plant was restarted, and processing recommenced earlier this year. The final bulk parcels of output from the pilot plant are being distributed, in co-operation with the Company’s distribution partner, a large, long established Asian international industrial and trading conglomerate. The material will undergo further separation (magnetic) facilitated by our distribution partner to be sampled by key-end customers identified by them, with the aim of consolidating and potentially extending the existing distribution agreement to cover the entire expected annual output of Dundas ilmenite concentrate. The pilot plant, which is in the process of being decommissioned, produced material that exceeded expected specifications for commercial production at Dundas. In addition, the results and the confirmation of the design of the wet plant circuit meaningfully de-risk the production-scale processing plant at Dundas and gives the Company confidence that large volumes of consistent and high-quality ilmenite concentrate can be produced at Dundas.
