Beer & Partners introduced shares in Epistem pre-IPO to investors in the Autumn of 2006. They were taken up alongside institutional investor portions in Spring 2007. The price of £1.24 which Beer investors obtained represented a discount to the projected and actual £1.50 AIM flotation price.
Today’s share price provides a return for Beer & Partners investors in excess of 3.2x their initial investment within 3 years.
Beer & Partners are pleased to confirm our first successful client funding as a direct result of November’s Investment Fair.

Beer & Partners are pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative, the DD Pack, aimed at making fund seekers more attractive to the investors who would like to see opportunities with some pre-completed due diligence.
We have teamed up with respected London law firm, Nabarro, to provide this additional feature.
A recent investment by a Beer & Partners investor, who will shortly join their Board, has helped Silverstone-based In’n’Out Services Ltd to move closer to their planned IPO? in late 2009/early 2010. Their fixed-price and fast (30 minute) formula for carrying out routine servicing and MoT testing together with professional valeting at very smart and clean outlets sited on major retail parks, seems to be capturing the hearts and minds of the motoring public.
