Tasty (TAST) Placing and Open Offer to raise up to £3.25m at 4p, a 33% discount. Will cut debt and keep the lights on.
Bonmarche (BON) prepares a weak defence to Philip Day's mandatory offer at 11.445p. It materially undervalues Bonmarché and the board "it had been planning a number of cost reduction actions." It will talk to Day.
