LONDON — Shares of Britain’s Metro Bank were briefly suspended from trading twice early Thursday, in a volatile session that saw the stock shed more than 29% from the Wednesday close.
They have since slightly pared losses.
The halts followed reports that the bank was trying to raise £600 million ($727 million) in debt and equity, according to Reuters.
