A “Further Covid-19 update” from Wagamama, Frankie & Benny's and Brunning & Price owner The Restaurant Group (RTN) commencing, “Through a range of decisive management actions, cash-burn during the November national lockdown was minimised to c. £5.5m for the month”.

However, the shares are currently more than 10% lower, heading towards 300p (though a still more than £600 million market cap), in response...
