We are delighted to have advised ActiveOps plc on their listing on AIM.

ActiveOps is a leader in management process automation, providing a SaaS platform to large enterprises with complex and global back-offices.  Its software and embedded back-office operations management methodology enables enterprises to adopt a data-driven, scientific approach to organising work and management capacity.   

ActiveOps has approximately 80 enterprise customers, predominately in the banking, insurance and business process outsourcing sectors with approximately 163 employees serving its global customer base from offices in the UK, Ireland, USA, Australia, India and South Africa. 

The business will build on its admission to AIM to accelerate the company’s growth plans and enhance its profile and reputation in the market. 

Our team provided a fully integrated service offering, collaborating effectively with the business and its wider advisors to bring the transaction to a successful conclusion; the team worked seamlessly across tax advisory and financial reporting advisory both in the UK and across the group’s global footprint. 

The transaction team helped ensure the IPO timetable stayed on track, providing advice across a number of areas as the transaction progressed and allowed management to focus on building broader stakeholder value. 


I am delighted that ActiveOps has successfully been admitted to AIM – it is an important milestone for the group and a great platform for our continued growth. I would like to thank David Willott and the whole Grant Thornton team for all their help and support throughout the process. They provided excellent technical advice on a number of complex areas and it was a pleasure working with this group of professionals who really helped contribute to the success of the transaction.
