Developing a solid IPO strategy and long-term plan is essential, which in turn will determine things like the timing of the IPO, the size of the offering and the pricing of the shares.

What our client's think

It is not an easy achievement under current market circumstances, but with the right people we have successfully achieved our main market listing. HUI is growing into an international Company, being listed now in three countries and developing a technology that will change how we perceive plastic waste.

Aleksandra Binkowska

Founder and CEO, Hydrogen Utopia International PLC

What our client's think

We are delighted at becoming a publicly traded company by joining the AQSE Growth Market. One Health continues to achieve growth through the use of facilities through partnerships with independent hospitals across a widening geography and excess capacity offered by NHS facilities and the growing awareness of its services among medical practitioners and patients in our areas of operation.

Adam Binns

Chief Executive Officer, One Health

What our client's think

It was a pleasure to work with Hydrogen Utopia International once again, together with Maya Wassink and Nick Michaels at Alfred Henry Corporate Finance and Carl Lundberg and William Abell at Gerald Edelman. It speaks volumes about HUI’s progress that it has been able to achieve a standard listing on the main market of the London Stock Exchange just 12 months after it was first admitted to Access segment of AQSE.

Corporate Partner, Laytons ETL

What our client's think

The directors of Oneiro Energy are delighted to list on the standard market and would like to thank Gerald Edelman for their timely and efficient help in meeting all regulatory requirements.

Roderick Murray

Non-Executive Director, Oneiro Energy PLC

What our client's think

We are extremely proud to have acquired Workpays and the Gerald Edelman Transaction team played a pivotal role not only in ensuring that this deal went through but that it went through smoothly. Their expert strategic advice was key in ensuring all investors and lenders were satisfied with all aspects of the deal – the accounts, the share purchase agreement, and the diligence. At all stages of the transaction, I was fortunate to be able to rely on their experience and knowledge to negotiate the transaction and structure the deal in a way that worked for everyone. It goes without saying that I recommend the team at Gerald Edelman to anyone who needs M&A and business advisory services and I’m looking forward to working with them again soon.
