Published at 13:33 PM on 07 October 2010

AIM 
Q3 2010: 12 IPOs (£175m) 
Q2 2010: 10 IPOs (£133m)

Main Market 
Q3 2010: 20 IPOs (£1,410m) 
Q2 2010: 27 IPOs (£2,529m)

Commenting on IPO activity on the AIM market in Q3 2010, David Snell, Partner, PwC, said:

 

  "There were 12 IPOs on AIM with a total value of £175m in the third quarter of 2010, compared with ten that raised £133m in the second quarter of the year.

 

“After the slow summer months, caution among the investor community seems to be lifting. The increase in offering value and number of IPOs since the last quarter is positive and could signal the beginning of a recovery on AIM.”
