A new major shareholder and chairman failed to offset the shock of a cash raising exercise and mandatory 5p-a-share bid. New chairman, with a 51 per cent, is Charles Wigoder, founder of Peoples Phone, taken over by Vodafone for pounds 77m.

Sock maker Pex is said to be planning a 3p rights issue. The shares held at 3.25p.
