JP Jenkins

April 18, 2024

3# Newsletter April 2024

Since going live on the 5th March 2024 for electronic trading and a shift to digital-first operations, we have significantly modernised our venue for trading unquoted securities. Our team is proving the thesis that seamless electronic connection brings more liquidity and greater transparency.  We’re encouraged to see JP Jenkins maintain its position as the first choice Matched Bargain Facility.

Trading volumes continue to exceed expectations and we continue to offer a liquidity venue for companies that are waiting to IPO or seeking to remain private. We now have a combined market capitalisation / valuation across our admitted private company  clients of circa  £1.3bn. This represents  an increase of over 100% growth in the 12 months. In the first month anniversary of us going ‘live’ with electronic trading, the team has completed over £10m+ in consideration of trading and over 400m+ shares being traded.

Last week we saw Cafedirect PLC and Loopup Group PLC shares admitted to our platform.

Steve Flavell, LoopUp co-CEO said “We are delighted to be able to support our shareholders and future investors by being part of JP Jenkins. The venue gives us continued structural features similar to public markets, such as transparency and investor access, and will enable us to continue to grow our multinational cloud telephony business while supporting our existing shareholder base with price transparency and the ability to buy and sell shares.”

John Steel, Cafedirect’s CEO said “We are delighted to be able to offer buyers and sellers of Cafedirect shares a platform to execute transactions via matched bargain on a secondary market”.

We have three more going live in Lexington Gold (Warrants), Red X Pharma PLC and Molecular Energies PLC.. The team is also in talks with over 20+ delistings to support a move to our venue and away from the public markets where it doesn’t seem necessary to maintain a listing.

Latest News:

In the latest article SmallCap RoundUp from The Armchair Trader we saw two companies that are intending to join us very shortly.

Molecular Energies PLC [LON:MEN] topped the board, up 60%. Whilst the stock has had a tough ride in recent months, yesterday’s confirmation that the business would move its listing from AIM to the JP Jenkins private venue has offered some clarity, allowing the share price to post a meaningful recovery as a result.

Redx Pharma [LON:REDX] was second, up 22%. This is a business that has elected to leave the main market and migrate to the JP Jenkins private venue. That process is still playing out, but the stock continues to gain ground from the losses posted in the immediate reaction to the news a couple of weeks back.
