European Procure-to-Pay Stocks Take a Hit

Unsurprisingly this morning we saw the P2P stock market open on a low note: particularly Basware and Proactis.

Basware’s negotiations with Tradeshift came to a halt yesterday partly following uncertainty from investors over the deal – nevertheless stock price fell 21%.

Proactis took a real hit with shares dropping just over 50% – partly to do with yesterday’s trading update. (On the up side - Proactis has also just announced £20 million funding from HSBC UK to help launch its SME facilitator Accelerated Payment Facility later this year. - more to come on that.)

Tungsten has done well – having recently reported positive EBITDA for the first time and 13.9% revenue growth, with stock doubling in February.
