A GLASGOW-based marketing consultancy is defying market gravity and planning a listing on the Alternative Investrment Market (AIM).
Marketing Management Services International (MMSI) employs 23 full-time and 150 part-time staff, and its business plan shows numbers rising to 720, more than half based in Scotland.
It plans to offer 20%-30% of its shares, and has set aside 10% for stock options which it hopes will help attract consultants liberated from bigger firms in downsizing exercises.
