Signs of rise in AIM flotation interest
Oil and gas start-up Longboat Energy and promotional products supplier Pebble Group have floated in the past couple of weeks. They are set to be followed by MJ Hudson, which provides support services for fund managers. Even so, 2019 will be a record low number of new companies joining the junior market.
Companies that are considering a flotation next year include chess championships organiser World Chess and inventory finance technology developer Supply Me.
There is even a possibility that Dobbies Garden Centres could make a return to AIM in 2020.
