The London Stock Exchange announced today that Jubilant Energy has become the fifth Indian company to float on AIM in the last ten weeks. Between them the five new Indian admissions have raised an estimated $344.4 million.

Tracey Pierce, Director of Equity Primary Markets at London Stock Exchange Group, said:

“This flurry of new Indian admissions by five diverse, ambitious and growing companies highlights the increasingly central role India is playing in the global economy, and how London can provide the capital to match the country’s appetite for growth.

“With a long and established relationship with India, our markets are a perfect fit for the country’s investment hungry companies – home to the world’s deepest pool of international capital and an unparalleled community of internationally focused advisers who truly understand the needs of Indian businesses. As market conditions continue to improve, and our pipeline strengthens, we look forward to welcoming many more Indian firms to London”.

Jubilant Energy is a holding company for a group of companies engaged in the upstream oil and gas exploration and production sector in India with a portfolio of interests in exploration, development and production assets.

On admission to AIM, Jubilant Energy raised $85 million, the third largest AIM IPO to date in 2010.

– Photon Kathaas joined on 4 November, raising $2.4 million

Ajay Khandelwal, Chief Executive Officer of Jubilant said:

“We are delighted to be joining the London Stock Exchange today. With its historic links to India, London is a natural home for the listing of our oil and gas company. We have a specific focus on the fast expanding energy market of India but we look forward to developing our business here over the coming months and years.”

Jubilant Energy’s admission takes the total number of Indian companies on AIM to 28. In total, IPOs by Indian companies across the London Stock Exchange’ s markets this year have raised $2.3 billion.
