AIM capitalisation higher with strong price performances


Investment firm Fundamental Asset Management, specialists in the AIM market, reports that despite a quiet month for new issues, the market has seen strong performance in share prices for many companies. 

Fundamental’s Chris Boxall says that new issue activity on AIM virtually ground to a halt in September with only one genuine new arrival Aura Energy, an Australian based uranium company. With eight cancellations there were only 1,000 companies listed at the end of the month. Yet despite the declining numbers the overall market capitalisation of AIM continued to surge higher (GBP82.98 billion from GBP80.57 billion in August) with strong share price performances from many of AIM’s larger companies.
 Boxall says: “Investors should be heartened by the departure of the under performers such as Superglass Holdings and the quality of the current market.
“Superglass Holdings started its listed life on the main market and serves as a great lesson for any investor to never trust a highly indebted business which sees private equity sellers exit entirely, having made a very quick return for very little of their own capital at risk.”
