IG Design Group is one of the world’s leading designers, innovators and manufacturers of celebrations, craft, gifting, stationery and creative play products.
The team began working with the Company in 2016 when it was beginning to re-build its momentum after several years of turn-around activity led by CEO Paul Fineman. Our objective was clear, to put the Company back on the Capital Markets’ map under its new branding.
Activity included a re-introduction of the Company to press and analysts, broadening of investor support with a particular focus on reaching retail investors and wider corporate profile raising. Within the first three weeks, Design Group was featured on BBC News and has since featured broadly across a range of news outlets. As a trusted partner to Design Group, since the initial programme, we have provided a truly full service offering, including support with internal communications, crisis planning and advised on three major acquisitions.
Since the team started working with Design Group the Company has more than doubled revenues, with its share price more than tripling. In January 2020 the Company completed a significantly oversubscribed placing to raise £120m.
Paul Fineman, CEO, IG Design Group plc said::
“The team at Alma have consistently provided a standard of service, advice and proactivity which has always delighted us. They do not only articulate great ideas – they deliver on them.”
