UK: BIS research paper - the listing decisions of UK companies

The most recent paper published by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, as part of its research paper series, considers the motivations behind the listing decisions of the UK companies: see here (pdf). The paper's findings are based on a survey of 31 predominantly UK owned and based mid-sized businesses (defined as those with sales turnover of between £25m and £500m), including 17 listing on the London Stock Exchange and 14 unlisted. Chapter five of the report considers corporate governance.
