FTSE 250 movers: 888 slumps on Entain warning; Pantheon ahead after tender offer
Shares in gambling outfit 888 Holdings slumped almost 8% on Monday after FTSE 100 rival Entain warned on third-quarter revenues due to regulatory headwinds, slow sales in Italy and Australia and adverse sports results in September.
Pantheon International shares bucked the trend as the company started its £200m share buyback programme with the launch of a £150m tender offer.
The company said the tender offer would be undertaken via a reverse auction, as part of the buyback programme announced last month.
Since then, the trust has already bought back more than £7.3m of shares, but the board said the tender offer would ensure all shareholders have the opportunity to obtain liquidity.
