“Listing on AIM and access to venture capital are the real alternative to debt for capitalising Italian SMEs, which account for 92% of national companies according to OECD sources and are still underrepresented on the list. The positive experience of AIM and the entrepreneurs of the listed companies should make private companies think twice about evaluating this alternative finance channel for growth. AIM Italia, by its very nature unencumbered by the logic of loss of corporate control or possible interference in governance by institutional investors, represents a new and effective way to grow and improve all financial ratios, allowing access, strengthened, to various forms of new finance. The Tax Credit measure on listing costs (Implementing Decree of 19 June 2018) has provided a boost for listings in the three-year period on the AIM market, which has recorded 78 new IPOs since January 2018. Increased listings by SMEs could be instrumental in facilitating our country’s GDP growth.”
