At Equiniti we pride ourselves on our specialist team of experts who collectively have over 40 years’ experience of bringing companies of all sizes to the market. With recent changes to the UK, including Brexit and mergers and acquisitions reaching record levels, it has caused some uncertainty with companies looking to float. Despite this, over the last two years the IPO market seems to be winning the battle against Brexit uncertainty with higher value listings through robust investor confidence.
We have done some analysis, comparing Q1 IPO figures over the past five years. Extracting detail around the number of companies that have listed, total sum of money raised and the comparison of the number of companies versus money raised. We have compiled this analysis into an infographic for you below.
