Countryside Properties announced plans to float on the London Stock Exchange and raise £114m.
The company, which then focused on housebuilding and partnerships, traded well in the following years, acquiring Westleigh Group and growing beyond its original Thames Valley base.
In 2021, it pivoted away from private housebuilding to focus on building for councils, housing associations and the private rented sector. In June 2022, the firm put itself up for sale after trading at below expectations led to an investor revolt.
Countryside was taken over by Vistry in a £1.25bn deal in November 2022.
