Sept 28 - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 64 points higher at 5,906 on Monday, according to financial bookmakers.
* ROLLS-ROYCE: Rolls-Royce RR.L said on Friday that no final decision had been made on allotting shares to potential investors, "including any sovereign wealth fund", as the British engineering firm was still reviewing all available funding options. PREMIER OIL: Premier Oil PMO.L is asking debt holders to extend a waiver on its borrowing terms beyond Sept. 30 while it tries to convince at least 75% of its creditors to back a plan to raise fresh equity, a source with knowledge of the matter said on Friday. GOLD: Gold edged up on Monday as the dollar slipped off a two-month peak it hit last week, due to caution as political uncertainty built ahead of the first presidential election debate between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden. OIL: Oil prices dipped on Monday as rising coronavirus cases upset hopes for a smooth recovery in fuel demand, with the main crude benchmarks on track for their first monthly falls in multiple months after last week's slips. The UK blue-chip index .FTSE closed 0.3% lower on Friday, but a near 44% surge in bookmaker William Hill on takeover offers lifted consumer stocks on Friday, helping UK shares outperform European peers and end a tumultuous week on a high note.
