SPARK obtains NOMAD status

SPARK Advisory Partners Limited (“SPARK”) is pleased to announce that it has been approved by the London Stock Exchange to act as a nominated adviser for AIM Companies (“NOMAD”) with effect from 24 January, 2013. This follows UKLA approval to act as a Sponsor to Main Market companies granted in November 2012.

Commenting on the announcement, Mark Brady a SPARK partner said “Being approved as a NOMAD for AIM companies has always been an important part of our plans for SPARK. The provision of our pro-active financial advisory services alongside a NOMAD role will allow our clients to obtain real value from this retained regulatory function. SPARK is now one of only about 30 businesses in the UK approved to offer both NOMAD (for AIM companies) and Sponsor (for Main Market companies) services to corporate clients. This valuable approval provides us with an excellent platform to continue to grow the SPARK Advisory Partners business.”
