Nov 26 - Britain's FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index is seen opening 7 points higher at 6,398 on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers, with futures up 0.42% ahead of the cash market open.

Amigo: Amigo (AMGO.L) reported a 36.5% fall in first half revenue and flagged "material uncertainty" about its future operations, citing worries over the pandemic, complaint volumes and the outcome of an ongoing regulatory investigation.

Fuller, Smith & Turner: Fuller, Smith & Turner Plc (FSTA.L) said it had cut 20% of jobs since the start of this financial year and reported a first-half loss of 22.2 million pounds ($29.71 million) hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Boohoo: Boohoo (BOOH.L) said it had appointed retired judge Brian Leveson to provide independent oversight of its programme to improve supply chain and business practices.

Aviva: Aviva (AV.L) expects to pay a total dividend for 2020 of 21 pence and increase it by low to mid-single digits, and is exploring options for its remaining European businesses, the British insurer said.

Mitchells & Butlers: Pub operator Mitchells & Butlers (MAB.L) reported it had swung to an annual loss and said it had cut 1,300 jobs as it could no longer support them due to store closures and reduced levels of activity.

Britvic: Britvic (BVIC.L) posted a near 22% slide in adjusted operating income for the year as coronavirus restrictions hurt demand at bars, restaurants, cinemas and other public places.

Unilever: Consumer goods group Unilever (UNA.AS) (ULVR.L) has agreed to buy U.S.-based vitamin company SmartyPants Vitamins, moving further into the consumer health market.

UK Regulators: Britain will borrow almost 400 billion pounds ($535.44 billion) this year to pay for the massive coronavirus hit to its economy, finance minister Rishi Sunak said on Wednesday, as he took his first steps to offset the country's highest budget deficit outside wartime.

Car Output: British car production slumped by an annual 18.2% in October as the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown measures continue to hit demand, said a trade industry body.

COVID-19: The British government will set out which COVID-19 restrictions each local authority in England will face when a national lockdown ends next week, allowing businesses to reopen in areas where infection rates are lower.

Gold: Gold prices rose as grim U.S. jobs data and worries over surging COVID-19 cases worldwide cast doubts over a quick economic recovery and bolstered the metal's safe-haven appeal.

Oil: Oil rose for a fifth day after a surprise fall in U.S. crude inventories gave further legs to a rally driven by optimism that vaccines will end the coronavirus pandemic and revive demand for fuels.

The UK blue-chip index (.FTSE) closed 0.6% lower after Finance Minister Rishi Sunak flagged a major hit to economic growth from the coronavirus, prompting an index of domestically-exposed stocks to mark its worst tumble in nearly a month.
