For some, going public allows their business a mechanism to more easily raise additional equity finance or provide an exit for existing investors. For some, going public provides an objective market value for trading shares in the business which makes it easier to use those shares to fund an acquisition or as an incentive for employees; investments in AIM companies also qualify for 100% inheritance tax relief.

We would like to invite you, as a fast growth business, to join us for a breakfast introduction to the pros, cons and realities of an IPO and whether going public on AIM could hold any value for you. No cost; no obligation.
