* NEW RESEARCH * UK quoted tech stocks soar in 2017

chartEight UK tech companies joined the London Stock Exchange in 2017, with five departures resulting in a net gain of three. However, the gain in aggregate value was more dramatic, increasing by 58% from £26.2b at the end of 2016 to £41.3b at the end of 2017. This was driven by the general increase in value of tech stocks, the revaluation of Micro Focus – now the UK’s most valuable software company – post the HPE Software acquisition, and the IPO of Alfa Financial Software which was valued at £1.6b at the year end.
