Countrywide plc, the UK's largest integrated property services group, won the award for ‘Best IPO of the Year’ at the 12th Annual Shares Awards 2013 held last night at Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Countrywide plc beat off strong competition to win the award for Best IPO/Fund Raising, which recognises corporate excellence. The award category was highly competitive this year but readers of Shares magazine voted Countrywide plc the winner.

Commenting on the award, Jim Clarke, Group Chief Financial Officer, Countrywide plc, said: “We are very proud to receive this accolade which recognises the considerable investment we have made in the transformation of Countrywide and is testament to the support and hard work of everyone involved in the success of our IPO. We were delighted to make the step from private ownership back to a public company, which is helping us continue our growth strategy through further investment in both distribution and quality of service."

Countrywide plc is one of only two UK property services groups to float on the London Stock Exchange in 2013 and since floatation the Group’s shares have increased by 50%.
