Ogier and the Channel Islands are prominent in the latest Equity Capital Markets statistics released by the London Stock Exchange for Q3 and the year to date.
Ogier has advised on some of the most significant IPOs of the year listing in the report, having worked with Wizz Air, Integrated Diagnostic Holdings and Nomad Holdings (a BVI SPAC which acquired the Birds Eye Foods business). In addition Ogier has taken roles in the IPO of John Laing Group and secondary issue by GKN (via a cash box placing).
Other Channel Islands IPOs include the Jersey trust and company administration business, Sanne Group, which IPO’d in April and has been very successful since. Guernsey-based UK Mortgages has also listed and is up for the year to date.
Ogier corporate partner Raulin Amy said: “It is positive to see that the Channel Islands again lead the charge as the jurisdictions of choice outside the UK for IPO vehicles on the LSE although BVI is also being used, particularly for SPACs.
“This is testament to the Channel Islands’ continued attractiveness for international businesses wishing to access the London markets.”
