The Dutch group picked up most of the shares on offer in a cash-raising exercise, lifting its stake to 53.1 per cent.
Crown Products, the games group that returned from suspension on Wednesday after putting through two acquisitions, said it has raised pounds 100,000 by issuing shares at 50p. OIS International Inspection held at 25p after rejecting the Abbot offer; Bruntcliffe Aggregates drew strength from Redland's bid for Ennemix, gaining 3p to 22p.
Their recent strength kept them in the FT-SE 100 index.
They recovered an early fall yesterday to close 4p higher at 152p, capitalising the company at pounds 1.77bn.
Reunion Mining suffered from a poorly received launch, falling 3p to 66p against Thursday's 80p opening.
