The biggest winner on the day was cybersecurity play Sovereign Cloud Holdings (ASX:SOV), which held its gains from morning trade after announcing the successful completion of a share placement to NextDC (ASX:NXT).

The two companies confirmed that NXT will acquire a 19.99% stake in SOV for just over $12 million. Along with a separate institutional raise, Sovereign Cloud added a ~$35m war chest to fund the expansion of its AUCloud network with new platforms in Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.

Also at the top of the winner’s list was ed-tech platform KneoMedia (ASX:KNM) as investors responded to a CEO presentation this morning, outlining the company’s strategy to drive the growth of its SaaS-based digital learning platform, with a focus on the US market.

Elsewhere, ASX game developer iCandy Interactive (ASX:ICI) continued its strong recent rally following the announcement of a $40m capital raising last week.

VR/AR-focused tech platform Vection Technologies (ASX:VR1) is also finding strong demand with investors — up by around 150% over the past month.

In resources, copper explorer Cannindah Resources (ASX:CAE) led the pack, jumping by more than 30% on no news.
