Recycling company allowing small investors to participate in IPO

Recycling company allows private investors to participate in its share listing on London’s AIM market next month

A company that builds machines which recycle plastic is allowing small investors to participate in its initial public offering ahead of a listing of its shares next month on the London Stock Exchange. 

The move, by Swindon-based Recycling Technologies, is a big victory for The Mail on Sunday’s ‘Fair Play For Small Investors’ campaign. 

We believe all firms that list on the stock market should embrace so-called ‘retail’ investors.

Most shun them in favour of City institutions. Recycling Technologies will list on the AIM market. 

The firm was unable to speak to the MoS ahead of the float for legal reasons, but has previously raised money from retail investors through crowdfunding. 

Its machines turn waste plastic into an oil which can then be used to make new plastic.
