Choosing to be a private company
This week Pitchbook demonstrated that more companies are choosing to remain private. A Bloomberg report shows that the number of companies trading in London has contracted by 25% over the past decade. So where there are fewer companies currently choosing to go public, there are also public companies seeking to go private.
We’re thrilled to act as a bridging solution to underscore our position as a venue for private companies as the UK public markets consolidate their position. Most recently we have successfully facilitated the delisting of two companies.
Our commitment to providing a seamless and efficient venue for companies seeking alternative liquidity options supports this. What does this mean for companies seeking a private alternative and why does JP Jenkins stand out as the preferred solution?
