London Stock Exchange Welcomes S4 Capital plc to the Main Market

S4 Capital celebrated its admission to the Main Market as it opened trading at London Stock Exchange this morning, Friday 30 November.

S4 Capital, led by Executive Chairman Sir Martin Sorrell, is building a new age/new era digital advertising and marketing services company through strategic acquisitions across three key capabilities: digital content, digital media planning and buying, and first-party data.

S4 Capital entered the market through a reverse merger with investment vehicle Derriston Capital plc in September. The company had already executed its first merger with an operating business, MediaMonks, an award-winning international digital creative content and production company, prior to this in July.

The company has announced further progress since joining the market, with the announcement in mid-November of impressive third quarter numbers - revenue up almost 45% and gross profit up almost 32% - and the appointments of Sue Prevezer QC as a non-executive Director and Michel de Rijk as CEO APAC.

Executive Chairman Sir Martin Sorrell said:
"I am pleased to celebrate S4 Capital’s admission to the main market and the successful launch of the business at the London Stock Exchange today. We look forward to updating investors old and new on our growth regularly, and are focusing on expanding our purely digital services into digital media planning and buying, first party data and further amplifying our content offer."
