The UK’s IPO activity has seen a decline in volume and value in the third quarter by 47% and 71% respectively, according to the latest EY IPO Eye. The Main Market saw eight IPOs, which raised £780m, while five flotations on the AIM raised £257m in total.

London’s Main Market and AIM exchanges secured the 10th spot among the top 10 stock exchanges globally by volume and by proceeds.

“IPO candidates are keeping an open mind when it comes to exit strategies, which can lead to lower IPO volumes in 2018.”
