AIM boosted by influx of IPOs

The Alternative Investment Market grew for the first time in six years in the final quarter of 2013 thanks to an influx of initial public offerings (IPO) and a fall in companies leaving the market, according to research by Scottish accountancy firm Campbell Dallas.

The total money raised by IPOs in 2013 was £1.17 billion, a rise of 65% on 2012 and the highest since 2008, insolvencies were at their lowest since 2007, and only 75 companies delisted compared with 280 in 2009.
