Good morning, it's Paul & Jack here, with Friday's SCVR.

To start you off today, here is the link to yesterday's SCVR, which I finished late last night, with 11 companies in total:


Lots of interesting companies there, so it's a pleasure to dig into those (Jack wrote the first section, as I was initially in bed with a hangover, after helping the De Beauvoir Arms (N1) minimise their lockdown 2.0 inventories write-offs, and singing "We'll Meet Again" with the staff just before closing time, which they convincingly pretended to enjoy!).

Agenda - a quiet news day, so I’ll cover a few items left over from earlier this week;

Premier Foods (LON:PFD) - Disposal (Jack, done)

H & T (LON:HAT) - Business update, from 5 Nov (Paul, done)

Mears (LON:MER) - Disposal & trading update (Paul, done)

Urban&civic (LON:UANC) - Agreed bid (Paul, done)

Watkin Jones (LON:WJG) - Trading update (Paul, done)

Senior (LON:SNR) - Q3 trading update from 3 Nov (Paul, done)

Tasty (LON:TAST) - Restaurant closures (Paul, done)

Update at 17:00 - today's report is now finished.
