PKF Littlejohn named #4 on London AIM Market
In a year like no other, PKF Littlejohn is proud to have helped so many listed businesses in 2020 achieve their vision – from listing on Aquis, AIM and the Main Market, to supporting takeovers and acquisitions. You can read all about the transactions and the companies we supported in our Capital Markets Deals Review 2020.
Now 4th ranked auditor for AIM listed clients Littlejohn are excited to have gone up the rankings in Consumer Discretionary & Consumer Staples, Energy, Financials & Real Estate, Healthcare and Industrials clients. These represented a total increase of 11 per cent when compared to listings during 2019. In terms of funds raised, the UK remained third behind the US and Chinese markets. During the year, AQSE saw seven IPOs. Of these IPOs, we were pleased to be involved in four of them.
Technology IPOs accounted for more than 25 per cent of total funds raised in 2020. No doubt Covid had some influence on this. A thriving biotech sector is benefitting from increasing opportunities in healthcare..
It was also encouraging to see new sectors coming onto the LSE in 2020, with PKF acting on the listing of Guild eSports Plc and Helium One Limited. Guild is the first global eSports business to be listed while Helium One represents the first company on AIM carrying out helium specific exploration activities in Tanzania.
