The new year saw a positive start for IPO activity, with three Main Market companies announcing an intention to float on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) within the first two weeks of the year.
Mining company, Panther Metals plc (Panther) was admitted to the standard listing of the Main Market on the LSE on 9 January.
Smart meter specialist company Calisen Group Holdings announced its intention to float on 9 January. The company is considering an application to be admitted to the premium listing segment of the Official List of the FCA and to trading on the Main Market of the LSE. Its IPO is expected to raise approximately £300 million in gross proceeds.
Japanese investment fund, Nippon Active Value Fund plc (Nippon) announced its intention to float on 7 January on the special fund segment of the Main Market on the LSE. Nippon has received binding commitments from cornerstone investors Dalton Investments LLC.

It is hoped that investor appetite will pick up amid the relative stability provided by December’s general election result and increased clarity over the UK’s departure from the EU.
