IPO Fever resonates with Merlin Entertainments

After the success of the Royal Mail IPO, the share price has risen a staggering 65% from listing price of 330p when it floated just under 3 weeks ago.

Merlin Entertainments Group is also hoping to replicate a successful listing when it is admitted on the London Stock Exchange on 15th November 2013 in order to raise £3bn.

The global group operates amusement parks and other entertainment venues such as the LEGOLAND chain, Madame Taussauds wax museums, Alton Towers resorts and the SEAL LIFE aquariums.

Retail investor interest in the offering is to be collated by 8th November 2013.
