|LONDON'S STOCK EXCHANGE TOWER SEES ITS LAST IPO CELEBRATION
Amino Technologies PLC had the honour of being the last company to celebrate its floatation at London's historic Exchange Tower after it was successfully listed on AIM on Wednesday 9th June.
The London Stock Exchange has been located at Exchange Tower on Old Broad Street since 1972 when trading was conducted face-to-face on the trading floor. The move to its new venue at Paternoster Square will be completed by the 11th June.
Amino operates in a high growth sector of the broadcast market. Its technology allows TV and video to be delivered over networks that are currently dedicated to the internet or voice telephony. The Cambridge-based company provides low cost set-top boxes, software and systems for the delivery of interactive video services over broadband networks using a system called Internet Protocol Television (IPTV).
Strong demand for its shares ensured a buoyant AIM debut for Amino, the price of which closed at the end of the first day's trading at 138.5p, after a 120p placing.
Bob Giddy, CEO of Amino, was presented with a plaque to commemorate the event during a small celebration involving the directors of the company, stock brokers, investors and various PRs.
Giddy commented: "It was a tremendous day. We were really pleased with the success of the float and quietly proud to have the honour of being the last company to celebrate the occasion at such a well known London landmark."
