Maestrano has been through two significant fundraising processes, a major acquisition and a strategic reorganisation with Arden. Their technical and process advice has always been well thought through, timely and constructive but at least as importantly they have always made strong efforts to ensure that they understand our business and that they are helping our team achieve our goals. The Arden team are frank, clear, hardworking and consistently supportive and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Arden plc have been a much trusted advisor to Jersey Oil and Gas for over 6 years and in that time all departments have gone the extra mile to understand the JOG story and its management team. Their excellent understanding of our requirements and ambitions has meant we view them as part of the team.
They have an experienced and professional corporate team and the No. 1 rated analyst in the sector that has proved invaluable.
In our recent fund raise the Arden Distribution Team was dedicated and delivered results. By putting in place a number of cornerstone investors early they hugely de-risked the raise which significantly contributed to the over subscribed issue.
The Board very much look forward to working closely with Arden in what I am sure will be an exciting next chapter of our development.
I have been impressed by everyone at the Arden Team, not just by their professionalism and ability to get things done but also by their dedication and willingness to “go the extra mile” to ensure our transactions, including our recent oversubscribed £5m placing, have been a success. The Board and I look forward to working with the Arden Team as we continue to grow and expand our business in the years to come.
Our relationship with Arden stretches back over 7 years, during which time they have raised in excess of £100m for the Company; supported our M&A programme; actively promoted our business and provided invaluable advice. As a result we have a supportive blue chip institutional investor base and are well placed to capitalise on opportunities as they arise.
From the date of our IPO in 2018, Arden has provided Anexo with an all-encompassing investment banking service that has proven to be second to none. Arden’s cross-department services – ranging from detailed M&A advice, equity issuance and day-to-day broking has delivered a blue-chip institutional shareholder base to the Company that allows us, as managers of the business, to concentrate on our business and its’ operational matters. We can operate safe in the knowledge that Arden has all of the PLC issues in hand.
Arden stood out as the team that spent the time to really understand our business from the get go and quickly saw the potential that we wanted to seize. The knowledgeable research team quickly appraised the value proposition and as you would expect from experienced professionals the corporate finance advice ensured there were no stumbles through the process. The sales team input led to the listing being oversubscribed. All round good teamwork.
Having known Arden now for 6 years, I can confidently say that the Arden team has committed time, effort and resources into developing a strong working relationship with Jersey Oil & Gas. I think that Arden more than most understands the importance of the client/broker relationship particularly for growing public companies. Regarding our recent equity placing, Arden delivered a great result and the Company is now well positioned to further its growth plans. We look forward to working closely with Arden in the future.
It was particularly impressive that you managed to introduce a broad institutional investor base and complete this fundraise so smoothly and in such a tight timeframe.
Since appointing Arden in October 2013 they have raised £133.5m from institutional shareholders for Palace Capital to support 4 transactions, including the £70m just raised to acquire RT Warren. Long may our relationship continue.
Arden’s knowledge of the professional services space played a key role in preparing for the flotation. Their team gave us comprehensive and high-quality support throughout the process. We are now looking forward to working with them on our next stage of development as a public company.
