Case study

FRP

FRP

Reducing risk through proactive, targeted pre-IPO marketing

£80m

Successful raising at IPO

£190m

Market capitalisation at IPO

FRP was the biggest IPO on AIM in 2020, raising £80m and realising a market capitalisation of £190m. Cenkos worked closely with the owner managers of this advisory practice, enabling them to realise £60m whilst retaining a significant stake in the company.

Through a proactive and targeted approach to marketing early in the IPO process, Cenkos were able to ensure there was strong, early demand for the company. This not only de-risked the IPO process ahead of broader marketing efforts but contributed to the client achieving a favourable valuation compared to peers.

Since IPO, Cenkos has continued to work closely with management, advising them as they grow their business as a public company.

FRP received the “Best Newcomer” award at the 2020 AIM Awards
“Cenkos provides us the opportunity to invest into smart and unique, value add property deals.”
