The Alternative Investment Market, or AIM, is the most successful growth market in the world. Since its launch in 1995, more than 3,000 smaller and growing companies have chosen to join AIM to raise the capital they need for expansion.
From our offices in Bath, Bristol, Taunton, Yeovil and London, Milsted Langdon’s AIM team provides a full range of services to companies listed on AIM, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and the PLUS Stock Exchange (PLUS-SX).
We also advise businesses considering their options for a stock market flotation, including which market is best suited to their circumstances, and draw up documentation required as part of a flotation.
These include the long form report prepared for the company directors and their Nomad, or nominated advisor, who works with companies seeking flotation to AIM, advising them on their suitability for flotation, project managing the process and subsequently acting effectively as their regulator.
The long form report is a type of due diligence, which explores all aspects of the company, its finances and its operations, with the aim of identifying any issues that could affect a listing and solutions to any problems. The report may include financial modelling to map the company’s financial viability as it goes forward.
The AIM team also prepares short form financial reports for the admission document, which companies seeking admission to AIM must produce, and prospectus. The short form report brings together financial statements for the last three years to assist potential investors.
Companies seeking a listing on the LSE or AIM are required to work to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and our team assists with this as part of our service throughout the flotation process.
