Numis is proud to have supported Oxford Nanopore on a major milestone - its IPO on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.

Founded in 2005, Oxford Nanopore is a UK-based spin-out from the University of Oxford, with a simple, bold mission: to enable the analysis of anything, by anyone, anywhere.

The £602.8m fundraise had strong support from global investors, including a £150m cornerstone commitment from Oracle Corporation, which comes in parallel with a research collaboration between the two organisations.

“We have a longstanding relationship with the team at Oxford Nanopore and it’s a privilege to work with this dynamic growth company, which is a pioneer in the field of nanopore sensing. The IPO now positions the company for the next stage of its development, as the management team continues to pursue its ambitious growth plans.”

This comes on the back of other recent high-profile IPOs for which Numis has advised, including Auction Technology Group and Victorian Plumbing.

The deal team at Numis was led by James Taylor and Freddie Barnfield, Co-Head of Healthcare Investment Banking.
