They're listed on the London Stock Exchange
They are filing for a US based IPO this year:
Their SEC F-1
The SEC filing has this possibly useful information:
The table above excludes, as of December 31, 2009:
• 970,183 ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of share
options outstanding with a weighted average exercise price of £1.63
• 2,152,461 ordinary shares issuable pursuant to deferred
share awards subject to vesting restrictions;
• 887,139 ordinary shares notionally reserved for future
grants under our deferred share awards plan; and
• 129,817 ordinary shares notionally reserved for future
grants under our share option plans.
Also possibly relevant, say they their outstanding share options as of December 31, 2009 had a weighted average exercise price of £1.63 per share. In US dollars, that equates to $2.57 per share. Is that a reasonable guess for the US shares?
