Stock market move for firm eyeing up Northern Ireland

By John Mulgrew

A company that previously said it planned to invest in Northern Ireland businesses has been listed on the London stock market. Rockpool announced that it had issued more than 12 million shares and would begin trading on the main market on the London Stock Exchange.

The business raised a total of £1.235m before coming to the market.

Mike Irvine, the co-founder and non-executive director at the company, welcomed the move. "The successful admission of Rockpool to the standard list represents a great opportunity to bring much-needed expansion capital to the Northern Ireland market," he said.

"Now that the company is trading on the London Stock Exchange, the board will refine its list of potential Northern Ireland-based businesses suitable for acquisition. It intends to conclude its initial transaction within 12 months."
