How AIM Works
Other Market Communications
Companies listed on London’s AIM are required to announce "price sensitive information" which includes changes in financial condition, sphere of activity and performance, or performance expectations, of the business.
The most common of these announcements is a Trading Statement wherein the London AIM-listed company believes that its financial results will not meet "market expectations". The market expectations may have been set by the London AIM-listed company itself, the company's Nominated Broker, the company's Independent Equity Research firm or third party analysts who follow the London AIM-listed company because their institution participated in the London AIM IPO or their institution makes a market in the company's shares.
Other common announcements include commercial events, changes to the London AIM-listed company's board of directors, change of Nominated Adviser or Nominated Broker, substantial transactions (i.e. > 10%), the issuance of additional debt or equity securities on London’s AIM and changes to the London AIM-listed company's significant (i.e. > 3%) shareholders whenever a full percentage point is breached in either direction above the 3% level.
