Small cap stars celebrate with the dinosaurs

WEDNESDAY night’s ninth annual Quoted Company Awards, this year held at the Natural History Museum, was a considerably more cheerful affair than in recent years, thanks to celebrity impressionist Rory Bremner.

Winners included Lupus Capital’s Martin Towers for non-executive director of the year, Snoozebox Holdings for IPO of the year, Entertainment One’s purchase of Alliance Films as deal of the year, Playtech for AIM to Main, Delcam’s Clive Martell as top chief executive officer and entrepreneur of the year went to Bernard Van Bilderbeek from Plexus Holdings.

After the trophies had been dispersed, Bremner rounded off the evening with impressions including Bill Clinton, John Prescott, President Obama, Tony Blair, David Cameron and that other political big dog, the X Factor’s Louis Walsh.
