Good morning! 

Plenty to digest today.

Final list:

Sosandar (LON:SOS)

  • Share price: 42p (+5%)

  • Market cap: £45 million

AGM Statement

This popular share is being watched and commented upon by plenty of analysts and investors. Today's statement is worth recording for the archives:

I am pleased to confirm that the momentum outlined in our Final Results Statement in July continued through the summer months, with significant progress across KPIs and without the need for extended discounted promotional activity.

Science in Sport (LON:SIS)

  • Share price: 70p (+0.4%)
  • No. of shares: 68 million

Today's H1 report wants to be that breakthrough point, but I don't know if I'm convinced.

H1 highlights (and lowlights):

  • revenues +20% to £10 million.
  • operating loss increases to £1.6 million (adjusted EBITDA).
  • excluding USA/Italy/Australia, instead focusing on what SIS calls its "core business", EBITDA…
