– The lack of flotations on the stock markets is likely to continue for the foreseeable future, experts warned at a recent ICAEW corporate finance faculty conference. Neil Austin, head of new issues at KPMG, said companies looking to raise funding would need to look elsewhere or defer flotation plans for up to nine months. Austin described the current market as ‘lamentable’, adding the market was the quietest it had been for a decade. But at the same conference Richard Campin from 3i told delegates that the slowdown was a good opportunity for management buy-out and buy-in teams to make a move while prices are low. Many company boards, he said, would be glad of the chance to focus on their business. He said MBO and MBI activity was quieter in the UK than the same time last year, but added there may be good opportunities in continental Europe.
