AIM / ISDX market listings

Nominated advisers (NOMADs) no longer require that every public company’s FD is full-time. The FD still needs to be strong and capable, but many companies are turning to a flexible resource, and FD Solutions has done this several times, notably for a Paraguayan Oil company. We’ll prepare the three-year projections that are needed for the working capital review and the financial reporting procedures manual that your NOMAD will require for the flotation, as we did for Spyker Energy [Striking a rich seam of financial resources]

We have worked with over a dozen AIM-quoted and ISDX-quoted client companies. We will accept an official Board appointment when required, and are always available for meetings with lawyers, NOMADs and brokers, and to present the company’s finances to its investors.  At AFC Energy our FD’s presentations were instrumental in raising £4m.

Chris Backhouse

Chris Backhouse

Chris works closely with clients to help them develop, grow and strengthen their businesses, build value and perhaps realise it, by way of a trade sale or flotation. His corporate finance work includes smaller business acquisitions and disposals, strategic and business planning, VC-backed transactions and AIM/ISDX market flotations.

Jim Halliday

Jim Halliday

A client of Jim’s planned to float on AIM in order to raise sufficient funds to further their business. They had no formal finance function in London, but required a part-time Finance Director to prepare consolidated group accounts for filing prior to flotation. Jim Halliday oversaw completion of the necessary sets of accounts, which were audited and signed off within three weeks.
