Hard to see why they would list to be honest.

To provide an exit and liquidity for earlier investors such as Bombora perhaps? Bombora Investment Group managed the SPAC vehicle that allowed RPro Holdings Limited to do a script based acquisition of Bike Exchange. Bombora are expected to retain a stake on IPO.

Quite likely, retail investors are the 'greater fool' suckers in these PE exercises in transfers of wealth.

Agree that most IPO's are for the purposes of generating exits for early investors rather than supporting strategic growth plans for the business.

For retail investors, there remains limited opportunities and access to early stage deal flow even if the risk profiles can be lower than some listed companies.

The topic of bicycles always gives me a headache and mentioning BEX will not improve it.

The chain of events leading to the poor continuation of cycling as a means of transport is linked to the abandonment of the casual cyclist, durry in mouth, slowly meandering through our towns and cities.

We are now saddled with an unsustainable race from ICE to EV vehicles because of the needs of very fast, lycra clad persons of all sexes having to wear helmets for protection and also for their heads.

Speed kills, not cycling.

The bar has been further raised by Emergency Doctors who know only about emergencies and ignore the health benefits of more slow riders taking to our roads.

Abandon these silly laws about bicycle helmets.

What is free wheeling in business?

Freewheeling opportunism is a concept that suggests a company does not need formal business planning instead it should remain open to opportunities as they arise and led by market conditions and events therefore adapting to changes required to take advantage of the environment to create competitive advantage.

- doesn't look like a business model suiting BEX

it's going to be a hard slog to get back up there. ....Since listing, just under a year ago.
