Dealings in the shares were suspended last week pending yesterday's announcement.
The listing ambitions were revealed alongside results for the six months to 2 January showing an increase in pre-tax profits from pounds 371,000 to pounds 604,000.
The interim dividend is 2.25p, more than the previous year's solitary final payout of 2p.
Patrick Moorsom, chairman, said: 'We now intend to expand by making further acquisitions available in today's market place. In order to achieve this the board has decided to raise new capital through a listing.'
Interest charges in the first half of 1992-93 rose from pounds 184,000 to pounds 295,000.
The company bought five more pubs during the period and the Dingwall's building in Camden Lock, London, was opened. A hotel and three pubs were sold.
Mr Moorsom said the company 'now has a portfolio of public houses which are refurbished and are generating growing profits'.
The recent acquisitions had 'further improved our purchasing terms', he added.Reuse content
