Today we are delighted to be able to share the news that our forthcoming IPO, the Conviction Life Sciences Company, is now available on many of the UK's key investment platforms. These include:

Our sincere thanks to all of you who were kind enough to fill in our launch IPO Survey the other day!

Please do have a look at the "How to Invest" section of our website that has links to all of these platforms and more information about how to invest more generally.

Press Coverage

In addition to getting the Company listed on the key platforms, we have been delighted by the coverage the Company has received in the UK press in the last few days. All articles are on the CLSC website if you would like to read more.

I was more than a little honoured to be invited on to the Ian King Live show on Sky News on Friday morning to discuss the Company and the opportunity in life sciences more generally, and our intermediaries offer announcement was covered by the likes of Shares Magazine, Financial News and MarketWatch.

Leading finance journalist, Joanne Hart, who writes the Midas column in the Mail on Sunday was also kind enough to write the following piece in that newspaper on Sunday: "Why life sciences start-up could be a wealth booster - Conviction Life Sciences Company should make the grade".

Investor Presentation Video

The final thing to share today is that last Wednesday I was able to record a video of our investor presentation with Robin Davison, the biotech & healthcare analyst at research company QuotedData. This is now available to view in full on our website along with some questions from Robin.

Timetable

We now have a couple of big weeks ahead of us with numerous investor meetings between now and closing the IPO on Tuesday the 13th of December.
If you are interested in investing and supporting one of the few investment company IPOs in London this year, please do look up "CLSC" with your investment platform or stockbroker or use the links above.
