SimplyBiz Plugs Sale Plans; Looks For Other Options To Raise Funds
May 5 15
SimplyBiz PLC dropped plans to raise money for acquisitions through a stake sale or initial public offering (IPO). SimplyBiz's management team has decided to retain its equity and shareholding so will not look for an equity sale or float in the immediate future. Neil Stevens, Managing Director of SimplyBiz, said the firm had decided to retain independence rather than sell a stake in the business. Stevens said, "'We believe that given the extraordinary amount of change and opportunity currently available in the financial services sector that we are better able to serve our customers and clients as a totally independent business. Specifically as regards to an IPO, whilst we have not ruled it out completely at some time in the future we certainly would not anticipate such an event for at least a couple of years and probably longer. In pursuing our aspirations to grow the business we are exploring funding options that keep the management team and the shareholder base consistent."

SimplyBiz, which claims to have a value of around £100 million, plans to use the money raised to fund further acquisitions. Matt Timmins, Joint Managing Director of SimplyBiz told New Model Adviser, "We are looking to generate income so we can use it to grow the business. The main ways to do that are through an initial public offering on AIM, or the sale of a stake in the business to a trade buyer or private equity fund." Timmins SimplyBiz had already identified three possible acquisition targets on which to spend the funds.
