An initial public offering (‘IPO’) can be a significant distraction to key management from the day-to-day running of the business which needs to be maintained to ensure market expectations are met. Having an IPO manager with a deep understanding of the process and priorities will help to ensure the transaction proceeds as smoothly as possible.
Making introductions to key institutions to see how the investment case is received by potential cornerstone investors ahead of kicking off an IPO. This can help to de-risk the entire process and highlight key issues well in advance of significant sums being spent. Lining up key cornerstone investors will also reduce the cost of the IPO and will help achieve more competitive rates from other advisors.
Making introductions to - and offering impartial advice when selecting - key advisors which will be critical in delivering a successful IPO. This includes the NOMAD/broker(s), accountants and lawyers. We will help benchmark fees from all key advisors which will ensure ‘keen’ pricing.
