BPE helps raise £10m for hexagon

BPE Solicitors has scooped its first instruction from Hexagon Human Capital, advising on its £30m listing on AIM. The Birmingham-based firm advised the company on its successful placing of six million shares at 165p each, raising around £10m. Corporate partner Anthony Rudge led the team advising on the IPO. Leightons Solicitors, led by corporate partner Cameron Sunter, picked up the role advising Brewin Dolphin, the sole nominated broker and nominated adviser. Hexagon intends to put the new funds towards acquisitions, clearing debt and working capital. Last December the company purchased UK-based interim management provider BIE.
