It was a successful night for Newgate’s financial PR clients at the 2017 Grant Thornton Quoted Company Awards last week.
Blue Prism won IPO of the Year with judges recognising the Company as an emerging leader in the world of robotic process automation software. Maiden results showed sales growth of 59 per cent and a revenue run rate 143 per cent higher than the previous year with their shares recently breaking the £5 barrier after floating last March at 78p. Bob Huxford, Partner at Newgate, collected the award on their behalf.
In addition, AB Dynamics Chairman Tony Best won the Entrepreneur of the Year award in recognition of his achievements as founder of the company which has seen strong demand for its R&D test equipment from the automotive industry. AB Dynamics floated on AIM in 2013 with a market cap of just £13 million and is now valued at over £100 million. Adam Lloyd, Partner at Newgate, collected Tony’s award on his behalf.
Newgate’s Associate Partner Zoe Pocock also made an appearance on stage to present the CEO of the Year award to Paul Fineman from IG Design Group.”
