A company which supplies bricks to some of Britain’s biggest housebuilders has cemented plans to list on London’s junior market at the end of this month.
The company plans to raise £57mln as part of the initial public offering, valuing it at around £150mln.
Chief executive Alan Simpson led a management buy-out of the business in 2016 and will continue to hold a 15.9% stake after the shares are admitted to trading.
Private equity firm Promethean Investments, which backed the management buy-out, will retain a 12.6% holding.
No Brexit concerns
Speaking to the Evening Standard, chairman John Richards said: “We have no concerns about the timing of the float before Britain leaves the EU. None of our European suppliers think import times will get longer after October 31.”
CEO Simpson added: “As the new build market continues to grow and we diversify our offer, we are in a strong position to keep growing with the market.
“An IPO of Brickability will provide us with a great opportunity to move the business into its next phase, capitalising on several years of strong growth.”
