NOMAD & SPONSOR

Shore Capital has sponsor status and is a Nominated Adviser for the purposes of AIM.

Our core areas of focus are capital raisings, initial public offerings, investor relations and public takeover advice. 

Shore Capital is approved as both a Sponsor for the Official List and a Nominated Adviser on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange with experience of taking companies public, creating access to capital, managing relationships with new investors and innovatively structuring transactions.

Our relationship-orientated approach lends itself well to advising growth companies and we strive to support our clients to achieve the maximum benefit from being a public company.  We have a strong track record of raising significant new capital for a range of companies, from small high growth companies to larger more established businesses.   

More recently we have worked on a number of significant transactions in a variety of roles including sole bookrunner, co-lead manager, broker, financial adviser, nominated adviser and sponsor.

Our advisory capability is based on over 100 years’ combined experience of advising public companies, giving them insight into the strategy and tactics behind successful transactions.

Our team combine sound commercial judgement with considered advice and a detailed knowledge of the regulations governing transactions including mergers and acquisitions, disposals and restructurings. Our entrepreneurial approach to transactions gives us the expertise and empathy with clients, enabling them to achieve their objectives.

We offer a comprehensive service to help clients manage their current and prospective investor relationships more efficiently and effectively.

We arrange regular roadshows across the UK for our broking clients as well as a number of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies, enabling them to maintain an ongoing dialogue with their investors whilst also introducing them to potential new investors. 

We provide comprehensive feedback on investor sentiment, helping management teams to understand how investors view their management, strategy and performance.

We keep our clients fully apprised of all developments in their shareholder base, with regular market updates and shareholder analysis.
