Ten Alps joined Aim in 2001 following its reversal into Osprey Communications. At that time there was a fund raising at 23p a share. The original business was founded by chief executive Alex Connock and non-executive director Bob Geldof. In 2006 the company paid up to £12.25m for contract publisher McMillan-Scott and this was partly financed by a placing at 65p a share. The company has split itself into two divisions: content and communications. The content division includes TV programmed production, radio programming and specialist internet sites and online TV. The communications division includes contract publishing, event organisation and marketing services.
