BAD DAY

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / NEWS -

Flota­tions:

Not so much a bad day but a bad year for IPOs. The largest list­ing of 2018, As­ton Martin, in the fi­nal quar­ter wasn’t enough to over­come a fall in the UK’s IPO ac­tiv­ity as com­pa­nies weighed up Brexit uncer­tainty, ac­cord­ing to EY’s lat­est IPO Eye re­port. Last year saw a to­tal of 79 IPOs list­ing in Lon­don – 44 on the Main Mar­ket and 35 on AIM – rais­ing £9.5bn. This com­pares with 95 IPOs list­ing in 2017 rais­ing £12.4bn.
