My dream, from the first day I started Team17, was to float on the London Stock Exchange. That ambition was there all along.”

Supporting you through the process

It’s not easy to prepare your business to be listed on the stock market. To be suitable for going public, a business needs to demonstrate consistency in performance both now and into the future – steady profitability and a predictable rate of growth. You must be confident that there is a clear path to scale the business and grow its revenues and that the sector in which you operate has strong growth potential. LDC can help you navigate this high-pressure process.
