    Property firm says stock market listing will help it raise more capital to expand and bolster brand recognition and credibility

    McCarthy & Stone, the retirement homebuilder, has announced plans to return to the stock market nine years after a debt-financed buyout led by HBOS almost forced the business into administration during the financial crisis.

    The company said it would sell at least a quarter of the business to raise £70m for land purchases and to allow Goldman Sachs and other shareholders to cash in parts of their stakes.
