British Honey Company plc

“As the first Company to quote on London’s Aquis Stock Exchange (AQSE), now part of the fast expanding pan-European Aquis Exchange group, we were most impressed with the support we received from the Exchange’s executive team, who provided invaluable help and guidance throughout the entire flotation process.

The IPO itself represents a key milestone in the corporate development of British Honey and will enable the business to expand and diversify both organically and by strategic acquisitions. The quotation on Aquis will also provide us with an enhanced public profile and greatly increased access to (equity) growth capital.

The increasing popularity of Aquis with like-minded fast-track growth businesses, bears testament to its innovative, cost-effective and ‘can-do’ approach to equities trading and fund raising.”

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF QUOTING YOUR COMPANY ON NEX EXCHANGE?

Originally NMR was part of the Milk Marketing Board (MMB) but following deregulation we have had a Plc status. The original shareholders were farmers who supplied MMB but now over 60 per cent of NMR shares are held by non-farmer investors. NMR needs a relatively low cost but efficient market. The demands for food security increase each year which means NMR is developing new testing protocols and innovative services for dairy farmers and we need the access to new capital that NEX Exchange can provide.
