London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) today welcomes two oil and gas companies to its unique business support and capital raising programme, ELITE. Provider of fire control and safety solutions for the energy sector, Blaze Manufacturing Solutions and offshore asset management, Attollo Offshore, are amongst the 20 new firms from across the UK joining ELITE today. The two Aberdeen-based companies bring the total number of Scottish firms in ELITE to 16.
This brings the total number of UK companies in the ELITE community to over 120, which includes companies such as online investment management service provider, Nutmeg, British furniture brand, Swoon Editions, and developers of affordable credit card sized computers, Raspberry Pi.
Robert Barnes, Global Head of Primary Markets and CEO Turquoise, LSEG, welcomed the new ELITE CEOs and Kirsty Blackman MP, Aberdeen North and SNP Westminster Deputy Leader and Economy Spokesperson, to open trading on London's markets this morning.
Today the new UK ELITE group brings the total number of businesses in the community to over 660, from across 25 countries and 35 sectors, generating over £45 billion in combined revenues and accounting for over 180,000 jobs across Europe and beyond.
ELITE continues to innovate with ELITE Club Deal, the online private placement platform helping to streamline the capital raising process for ELITE companies. This year Lendinvest, the alternative property lender and investment platform, was the first ELITE UK business to launch a retail bond in London. Last year, ELITE alumni, Van Elle, the Nottinghamshire based geotechnical contractor, became the first ELITE company in the UK to float on London's markets, raising £40 million on AIM.
Luca Peyrano, CEO, ELITE:
“I am delighted to welcome the latest group of UK companies to ELITE. Innovative, inspiring and fast growing businesses are essential for the British economy driving growth, innovation and employment. We look forward to supporting 20 more UK businesses scale up and achieve their growth ambitions.”
