Advised on Admission to Trading, £17 Million Fundraising
Advised Samarkand Group PLC, a cross-border e-commerce technology and retail group, on the admission of its ordinary shares to trading on the APEX segment of the Aquis Stock Exchange Growth Market in the U.K. The significantly oversubscribed fundraising was scaled up from its original £10 million target to accommodate demand from institutional and qualified investors. The final amount raised was £17 million (before expenses) at an issue price of 115 pence per share. The net proceeds will be used primarily for the expansion of Samarkand’s business development activities and to progress the Nomad platform, its proprietary software platform.
