Extending the Brexit deadline opened a window of opportunity for IPO-ready companies to list on the London markets – but what about the future?
Our latest issue of the IPO Eye reveals that extending the deadline for the UK to leave the EU opened a window of opportunity for IPO-ready companies to list on the London markets.
Financial and support services were Q2’s dominant sectors, raising £1.96bn in total, and London hosted two of the top 10 global IPOs by funds, including Trainline.com.
Following a quiet start to the year, The London Stock Exchange saw a more active Q2, with 15 IPOs collectively raising just under £4bn.
The Main Market saw 10 IPOs which raised a combined £3.8bn, whilst the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) had five new admissions, raising just under £200mn.
