Waste management company Biffa today floated on the London Stock Exchange.
The initial public offering (IPO) was pushed through at a reduced price after the company failed to find enough investor interested.
The company's base price, which has remained largely flat so far today, was 180p, down from an earlier target of 220p.
Chief executive Ian Wakelin said in a statement today:
We are delighted to have reached this important milestone, and we now look forward with confidence to the next stage in the development of Biffa as a public company.
