Listing is an important step in the development of private companies that can provide capital for growth, create a market for the company’s shares, enhance the profile and credibility of the business, and ultimately provide an exit strategy for its owners.
There are a number of UK specialist markets designed to meet the characteristics of a range of businesses: the Main Market for large and well established businesses, AIM for mid-sized and growing companies and the PLUS market for smaller companies.
And there are several phases to flotation, all of which need the support of experienced corporate finance professionals. Moore Stephens Corporate Finance has advised and supported clients from across the globe in the IPO process not only for UK capital markets, but also NASDAQ, Johannesburg, Oslo, Moscow and Toronto.
