First Investment Company IPO of the Decade on the London Stock Exchange
Nippon Active Value Fund (NAVF) has today announced that its shares have been admitted to the Specialist Fund Segment of the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market following a successful initial issue which raised gross and net proceeds of £103 million.
NAVF intends to invest in a highly concentrated portfolio of quoted companies which have the majority of their operations in, or revenue derived from, Japan and market capitalisations of up to US$1 billion. NAVF will take advantage of recent corporate governance reforms in Japan to engage with management teams and unlock value and believes that its activist strategies will deliver increased shareholder returns in these companies.
Shore Capital is delighted to have acted as Financial Adviser and Sole Bookrunner to NAVF on its IPO and will be acting as Sole Broker following its admission today.
