AIM Insights: Review of AIM for the Six Months to June 2016

15 September 2016

The first half of 2016 saw a rebound in the number of AIM IPOs, following a challenging year in 2015.  There were 26 IPOs in H1 2016, compared to only 11 in the second half of 2015. In terms of IPO funds raised, values have seen a resurgence too, with proceeds of £528m in H1 2016 outstripping the performance of the whole of 2015 (£470m) and increasing five-fold compared to the six months previous (£118m). 

BDO retained its position as number 1 reporting accountant and, if non-IPO transactions are also taken into account, we completed five more transactions than any other firm.  This continues to be a strong message to relay to any clients thinking of listing on AIM.
