Decoding the IPO Journey
13 September 2021
For private companies looking at raising capital and providing an exit route for their investors, an Initial Public Offering (IPO) can be an attractive and strategic option to fund growth and access deep liquidity pockets, although, promoters and managements are required to strategically evaluate the pros and cons of issuing an IPO, before concluding on the decision to go public.
The ‘Going Public’ journey is often cumbersome and time consuming, requiring exhaustive and meticulous planning, adherence to procedures and regulations relating to regulators and exchanges, and meeting stakeholder expectations.
This transition from a private to a public company is an intense and transformational change for any organisation that commits to undertaking this significant process, and entails focused planning supplemented with a commitment to succeed and collaboration with the right partners and advisors.
To help companies considering the decision to go public, to understand each phase of this journey and comprehend the requirements that the process demands, we are pleased to present ‘Decoding the IPO Journey - A Three-phase approach to understanding the listing process’. The publication elaborates each phase of the listing process and focuses on key activities that must be considered to ensure success at each stage and eventually at the exchange.
