About New Issues

New Issues provide both private individuals and institutions with the opportunity to invest in a company's shares when they are first quoted on the stockmarket. In London there are three alternative market listings. Shares may either be offered on the Main Market, the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) or on the smaller PLUS facility. There are basically four ways by which a new issue can come to the market :-

1. Introduction/Listing
Where the shares in a company are already held in accordance with Stock Exchange requirements and a company does not want to raise additional capital. In this case, the existing shares are simply listed and there is no opportunity for new investors to participate until trading commences on the open market.
2. Placing
Is where shares are offered on a selective basis - normally only to institutions or to clients of the sponsoring broker.
3. Intermediaries Offer
Similar to a Placing except stockbrokers can make applications on behalf of their own clients.
4. Offer for Sale
Where shares are generally offered both to private individuals and institutions through a public offer for sale.
