We find that many companies are not aware of what the public markets can offer them. Listing on a stock exchange offers opportunities for companies to find long term capital and this can be particularly attractive when other forms of finance are expensive or hard to obtain.
London’s AIM and PLUS markets have been designed to help companies attract capital in a environment with fewer regulations than the official list of the London Stock Exchange.
Once listed on these markets companies can expect:
- An enhanced profile
- Increased status and credibility
- Better access to a wider pool of capital
- Tax benefits
- The admission process for the markets are not as daunting as many directors and owners think and, unlike other markets, the AIM and PLUS markets have no minimum criteria with regards to size, track record or number of shares in public hands.
The DMH Stallard Public Markets team are experts at guiding companies through the admission process step-by-step. We are particularly experienced in growing companies looking to raise between £1 million and £25 million.
