Transact chief executive Ian Taylor

Transact parent IntegraFin Holdings is applying to list on the main market of the London Stock Exchange with the float expected to take place in March.

IntegraFin today confirmed its intention to go ahead with an initial public offering.

Shares in the company will be offered to UK institutional investors. Those “elsewhere outside the United States” will also be able to invest in Integrafin.

According to the company, the offer size is expected to be more than 25 per cent of issued share capital. After the IPO, it is expected the company will be able to be included in FTSE UK indices.

We are extremely positive about the future.”

Earlier this month Transact reported profits of £29.9m for the year to 30 September 2017. Gross inflows rose by 49 per cent to £5.31bn and net inflows increased by 66 per cent over the 12-month period.
