Download: analysis of current and emerging trends in UK PLC equity raisings

The recent surge in equity fundraisings up to the end of May 2020 shows that UK PLC is still in a healthy state, despite the challenges of COVID-19, according to this report by Addleshaw Goddard. AG, which has acted on 8 fundraisings in the last 8 weeks, reports that whilst times are tough for many UK quoted companies (as with many other businesses), fundraising activity is currently showing no sign of letting up, demonstrating the resilience of the market. Whilst the first wave of fundraising was mainly from the retail, consumer and leisure sectors – some of those hit the hardest by the crisis – there is an expectation that more sectors will now join in.
