Investment summary

In early July Numis reported that its Q322 revenue was over £40m compared with the £37m run rate reported in H122. There was a strong improvement from Q222 with mergers and acquisitions (M&A) driving the performance of the investment banking activity. On the equity side of the business, revenue was marginally below the run rate of the first half, reflecting more cautious investor sentiment and lower market and activity levels, particularly in UK small and mid-caps. However, trading performance improved mitigating the impact of this weakness.

Industry outlook

Looking ahead, the pipeline of announced and possible M&A deals remains strong. The expected opening of a Dublin office in Q422 will facilitate providing services to non-UK issuers, European institutional investors and private companies seeking growth capital. While conditions are less favourable for equity capital markets and equities, the group expects to meet market expectations for the full year and, allowing for a seasonally quiet summer period, our forecast is unchanged.
