Keystone Law is set to become the third UK firm to list on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), following Gordon Dadds and Gateley. The mid-market challenger firm plans to join the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) where the new trading entity will be known as Keystone Law Group plc. Corporate broker Panmure Gordon has been instructed by the firm to act as financial adviser during the process. Shares will begin trading on 27 November and are expected to raise £15m in total, with the placing price of 160 pence per share which values the firm at £50m. Keystone CEO James Knight said: “I am delighted to announce that we will be joining the AIM market. The entire team has worked hard to establish our position as one of the leading UK mid-market challenger law firms. Our decision to list on the London Stock Exchange will provide us with the most resilient and stable platform to support our ambitious growth plans long into the future.” Keystone Law was one of the top revenue risers in this year’s UK 200, growing by 22 per cent to £26m during the 2017. The firm also showed one of the highest rises in revenue per partner, up 22 per cent to £4,267 despite a boost in fee-earner numbers. The firm converted to an Alternative Business Structure (ABS) in October 2013 and received a £3.15m cash injection by private equity firm Root Capital the following year.

AIM breaches £100bn in August. Our latest Blog covers all the new arrivals and compares AIM today with the market in 2007, the last time it hit the magical £100bn level.

Pretty reasonable valuation for now but when you factor in the upcoming acquisitions the share price should follow. Excellent management with a clear vision and enthusiasm to turn this into a 100 million market cap. All that's needed is time imv.

Very late reply - good point jon. I'm very on the fence here; anyone got any convincing facts to tip the balance?

I'll have a scan back in the morning Reading these prospectuses are a real pain ;)

Dan - I've just checked the prospectus, and the bad debts you mention seem to have been acquired when a couple of practices were bought out of receivership. (Check p69 - is this the one?) They don't seem to have incurred any impairments over the past three years.

The main thing worrying me here is the valuation. Read the prospectus, but still looks like this is only making 1.5m on a theoretical post tax basis to adjusted earnings. Are those adjustments fair? Then secondly, they seem to carry quite a high amount of debtors now written off as bad debt

Dan - GTLY has done well since IPO, so this intrigued me. Watch out for law businesses to be disrupted over the coming years: • Alternative fee arrangements. Microsoft and some other large companies are rejecting hourly billing in favour of bidding for a whole job. • Portfolio financing of litigation. Loans or equity share of results are beginning to spread. (See Burford Capital, for instance: BUR.) • AI to assist with legal discovery. Some firms have started up with this in mind. • Consolidation of back office. This is where GOR's acquisition strategy is aimed. • Online courts. this is where integrated IT systems will be an advantage.

Agreed. Intriguing this one, just trying to gauge whether the IPO price is interesting enough

Dan - check out my post #10, though I'm not saying it's the last word. The current MCap contains unearning cash, and valuation on IPOs is always a messy business. EV/EBITDA is often used.

Appears to make adjusted PBT of 2m, a loss after tax on normal terms, so PAT of 1.6m on an adjusted basis. Hardly looks cheap?

Hargreaves Hale also. It's been a good start to AIM so far with a 60k buy today and another blue finish.

Holdings are being announced (see header). There were some in the prospectus, but these are verified. Two significant names. I think Woodford will be in the list in due course.

Second day on AIM and another blue one, don't expect to wait too long before the first acquisition.

Margins pretty thin but acquisitive.

Yes, name invites a bit of jollity. EV/EBITDA looks around 7.3x, compare GTLY on about 11.5x. Will be debt free at launch, always a good sign. Small law firms tend to get stressed in recessions, so the consolidation approach might come in useful ... as long as GOR doesn't get too stressed, that is. It looks as though they do useful things - contract law, dispute resolution, etc. and have nothing to do with accident compensation or (horrors!) human rights chasing.

Should be ok, as long as the management aren't partial to a few bottles of Gordon's Gin a week 🙄
