FTSE 100 movers: Frasers gains on buyback; GSK loses ground

(Sharecast News) - London's FTSE 100 was up 0.1% at 7,577.51 in afternoon trade on Monday. Frasers Group rallied after saying it would start an £80m share buyback up to April 28.

In a short statement, the owner of Sports Direct and House of Fraser said the buyback of up to 10 million shares would be used to reduce its share capital.

Anglo American was also in the black after it said that it and Finnish Minerals Group have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together to explore opportunities to further support Finland's battery strategy.

Finnish Minerals Group is a holding and development company that manages the Finnish Government's mining industry shareholdings and supports the development of the Finnish battery value chain.

GSK lost ground even as it announced that bepirovirsen, an investigational antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) aimed at treating chronic hepatitis B (CHB), had been granted fast track designation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
