Infrastructure investment firm John Laing has announced plans to raise £130m by floating on the stock market.

It had previously been listed since 1953, before being taken private in 2007.

Olivier Brousse, John Laing's chief executive, said: "The need for new infrastructure worldwide is growing fast, driven by population growth, urbanisation and climate change. Governments and public authorities need the private sector in order to help with financing but more importantly with delivering and managing this infrastructure.

"Our track record is underpinned by annualised returns in a 23-25% range on investments in infrastructure and renewable energy projects made and realised since 2007."
