FTSE 250 movers: Tui travels higher; CMC Markets loses ground
Tui was the top performer on the index after announcing on Wednesday that it planned to raise €1.1bn (£940m) through a fully-underwritten capital increase to help pay down massive debts incurred during the Covid pandemic.
JTC was also a high riser after the fund management services provider raised £78.9m in a placing to help fund the acquisition of US-based SALI.
The company placed just over 10.99m shares at 718p each. It had announced the acquisition and placing late on Wednesday. It has agreed to buy SALI – a provider of fund and structuring administration services to the insurance dedicated fund and separately managed account market – for up to $236m.
Online greeting card retailer Moonpig was on the rise, having fallen sharply a day earlier on the back of a broker note.
Workspace rallied after the flexible office space provider said customer demand had improved in the second quarter of its trading year, with a strong pick-up in activity during September.
Online trading platform CMC Markets fell as it reiterated its full-year guidance for net operating income.
