The following is a round-up of updates by London-listed companies, issued on Wednesday and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

Synthomer PLC - Essex, England-based chemicals manufacturer - Updates on trading to October 31. Says trading has been broadly consistent with expectations. The key trends set out at the half year results have continued, with subdued volumes and limited visibility given the challenging macro conditions throughout the chemicals industry. Points out speciality businesses have continued to deliver significantly more resilient pricing and volumes relative to base chemical products, which are subject to increased global competition and greater negative operating leverage. Does not anticipate any improvement in customer demand for the remainder of 2023, with a risk of modest further slowdown in activity in certain base chemicals areas if market trends seen in the third quarter persist. Still expects to make sequential progress in the second half of 2023 relative to the first, driven principally by previously announced self-help measures.
