As you will read in the Press we are delighted to announce the merger of Cavendish with finnCap and our intention to list the combined group on the London AIM Market very shortly.

finnCap is the largest adviser to ambitious growth companies and the number one AIM broker, having raised over £2.5bn since inception, and has acted on over 18 IPOs in the last three years.

Cavendish celebrated its 30th anniversary this June, having advised on some 600 transactions, and we have just completed our most successful six months in the history of the firm.

With our record as the leading specialist sell-side M&A adviser in the UK and as a member of the international group Oaklins, we believe the combination with finnCap will offer ambitious, growing businesses an unparalleled service focused exclusively on their needs.

Jon Moulton will be Chairman and I will be executive Deputy Chairman of the combined group. The Partners and executives at Cavendish are very enthusiastic about working with finnCap following the merger as a team going forward.

In terms of our day to day operations and Cavendish’s core focus as specialist sell-side advisers, it will be very much “business as usual”, and the merger will not cause any disruption to our current or prospective clients.

Indeed, as a combined group we will, in addition to our core sell-side M&A offering, be able to provide our clients a much wider range of services, including private placements, debt advisory, capital raising, dual track and IPOs.

We look forward to working with you in the near future as a new group and I would be delighted to speak to you about any aspects of this exciting combination.
