£14.5 million was raised through a placing, (£12m), share subscription (£2.1m) and restricted offer (£0.4m).

Nick McCarthy, corporate partner at BDB Pitmans led the transaction, and was assisted by senior associate Daniel King, solicitor Laura Crotch and trainee solicitor Emma Watson.

Commenting on the transaction, partner Nick McCarthy remarked: “The corporate team is delighted to have advised on another successful IPO and to secure an excellent outcome for the client in this challenging climate. It is also heartening to see the company open strongly in the first day of dealings.”
