AIM Investor Focus, the Blackthorn Focus (publisher of AIM Prospector) event for AIM-quoted companies and their investors will next run on Tuesday, April 21st at the City offices of finnCap.

AIM Investor Focus has been running since April 2012. In that time, some of the very most successful companies on AIM have participated. Five of the companies listed in this article 'The Ten Most Successful Companies on AIM' have presented at past AIM Investor Focus events.

26 companies have participated at AIM Investor Focus. 20 of these have since gone on to increase their dividends to shareholders at every subsequent opportunity.

AIM Investor Focus kicks off at 11am on Tuesday. Four companies are scheduled to present. They are: Christie (LON:CTG), EMIS (LON:EMIS), Fairpoint (LON:FRP) and NAHL (LON:NAH)

In the full  year before the financial crisis, Christie reported a post-tax profit of £4.7m. Data from the company website shows how quickly prices being achieved for business assets are recovering. Today, the company has a market capitalisation of £40m.


EMIS is an AIM blue-chip with a market cap of £570m. The company is a provider of software services to the healthcare industry. Dividends at EMIS have been increased every year for the last five years.

Stockopedia gives the shares a Quality score of 99.

It is extremely rare for private investors to be able to meet a company of EMIS' calibre at an investor event.

Fairpoint (LON:FRP)
