Sam Smith, CEO commented:

"We closed 4 further M&A deals between our AGM update on 23rd September and the end of the first half of the year and group revenue is up 55%.   In H1, we raised £243m of equity for clients, advised on 5 public company M&A transactions with an aggregate value of nearly £500m and on 13 private M&A transactions with an aggregate value of £1 billion.

Our finnCap Capital Markets team performed well - in a comparatively quieter period - and revenue is in line with our expectations.  finnCap Cavendish has clearly capitalised on a robust M&A market. 

Our overall revenue growth shows the clear benefit of our strategy to diversify our products beyond ECM - undertaken over the past 3 years - to service the broader strategic and financial needs of ambitious growing companies.  Our pipeline is healthy and we now feel confident in delivering a revenue outcome for the year within an upgraded range of £45-50m.

I look forward to announcing our interim results and updating investors on our current trading and dividend expectations for FY22 later in November."
