As AIM celebrates 25 years, we at Zeus Capital are proud of our relationship with The London Stock Exchange and the investment community.
Since June 1995, over 3,800 growth companies with primary operations across 79 countries have raised over £118 billion and AIM has become one of the most successful growth markets in the world.
Over the last 10 years, the team at Zeus Capital have advised on 30 IPOs, placing a total of £2.9 billion across AIM and Main Market: we have acted on placings totalling £5.7 billion across IPOs and other transactions. We are proud of our position as the leading adviser of Initial Public Offerings on AIM over the last six years.*
This week, as AIM celebrates its 25th year, we are proud of our association with boohoo.com which has grown to become the largest company on AIM with a market capitalisation of £5.2 billion. Zeus Capital acted as boohoo’s financial adviser and sole broker when the company listed in 2014, raising £300 million at 50p a share with a market capitalisation of £560 million and a turnover of £114 million. The boohoo business has grown 10 fold and now generates a turnover of £1.1 billion per annum and has expanded internationally, successfully acquiring Pretty Little Thing, Karen Millen, Coast and more recently Oasis and Warehouse as it rolls out its e-commerce platform. Over this period we have provided strategic advice and assisted in raising an additional £250 million to fund the company’s expansion. Many congratulations to Mahmud, Carol, John, Neil and the wider boohoo family; it’s an incredible achievement.
At Zeus Capital we congratulate both AIM on their 25th year and the wider investment community and the advisers who have supported this exciting growth market and we continue to work with an impressive stable of growth companies that intend to make AIM their home of choice in the future.
On behalf of Zeus Capital, well done #AIM25 #boohoo
