Baker Tilly has acted as reporting accountant for Secure Design KK, the first
ever Japanese company to be admitted on AIM.
Secure Design, which develops biometric technology and fingerprint
authentication systems, was admitted to trading this month. The company’s 31.4
million shares were issued at 47p each.
The company chose to list on AIM in order to raise its commercial and
financial profile and drive growth and acquisition.
Baker Tilly partner Kevin Denham, who worked on the IPO, said he hoped the
float would open ‘the door for other Japanese companies to consider AIM as a
market of choice’.
