AIM Awards celebrate 20th year alongside AIM exchange’s 20th birthday as winners are announced

Published at 12:13 PM on 09 October 2015

PwC is proud to announce the winners of the AIM Awards 2015.

In this, the AIM exchange's 20th year, the volume, range and quality of nominees and winners illustrate that the AIM market remains a dynamic and healthy one.

Underlining the strength of companies across the UK, winners included carpet maker Victoria plc, based in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, which scooped the Best Performing Share award.  

Veterinary services firm CVS Group plc, headquartered in Norfolk, won the Company of the Year gong, while Peter George of Staffordshire-based pharmaceuticals business Clinigen Group plc took home the Entrepreneur of the Year prize.

Also in its 20th year, the AIM Awards dinner, which took place at Old Billingsgate in London, hosted more than 1,000 representatives of  AIM quoted companies, NOMADS (nominated advisers), brokers, accountants, lawyers and other corporate partners, making it the largest AIM gathering in the City.

The awards, which are sponsored by PwC, and produced jointly with Ford Sinclair Ltd, continue to be one of the highlights in the City calendar.

David Snell, PwC partner, said:

"AIM is 20 years old, and in its relatively short life it has become an important platform for young companies to raise the money they need for expansion. It is also incredibly diverse. Over 100 countries in the world are home to the central operations of at least one AIM company.

"With the focus so often on AIM companies in the spotlight for the wrong reasons, these Awards showcase the hugely successful companies which AIM has helped to achieve their strategic goals."
