Two IPOs in less than ten days
Liberum has made a strong start to 2021. Fresh from the successful Virgin Wines IPO and just nine days later, Liberum’s Consumer Team completed the IPO of In The Style, raising in aggregate c.£110m across both these significantly oversubscribed transactions. Liberum acted as Nomad and Sole Bookrunner on both IPOs.
Clayton Bush, Head of Liberum’s Consumer Team said: “It’s testament to the quality of both companies and also the huge amount of investor interest we are seeing in the sector that we priced both deals at the top of the range. I’d like to thank the management of both companies, who have been a pleasure to work with, and also the Liberum team involved.”
Liberum Team: Both IPOs were led by Clayton Bush (Investment Banking), Wayne Brown (Consumer Equity Research), Oliver Baxendale (Equity Sales) supported by Liberum’s Consumer, Sales and Corporate and Investor Relations teams.
