Film special effects firm DNEG said today that it had postponed plans for an initial public offering (IPO) in London due to ongoing market uncertainty. 

DNEG had received a strong level of interest from investors and would be assessing when to revive its IPO plans once market conditions improve, it said in a statement. 

Ten European IPOs set to raise $2.3 billion were cancelled in the year to mid-October, with investor sentiment battered by expectations of an economic slowdown due to Brexit and the US-China trade war.

In London a number of listings have been pulled this year, including Kazakh finance firm in October and Swiss Re's British life insurer ReAssure in July. 

However, African mobile networks operator Helios Towers listed in London last month at a market capitalisation of £1.15 billion. 

Its stock market performance has been steady. 

DNEG was intending to raise £110m from the IPO, at a price range implying a valuation of $654-857m. 

DNEG has offices in India and the US and its clients include 20th Century Fox, Disney and MGM.
