Capital Markets Advisory
Going public can be an attractive and strategic option to fund growth and access deep liquidity pockets, however, getting there is often a time-consuming and daunting process. Preparation is the key to a successful IPO and developing a comprehensive and forward-looking strategy is critical for long-term success.
For businesses considering the ‘Going Public’ decision as a priority, it is imperative for managements to evaluate and address financial reporting, governance, regulatory & accounting considerations, amongst the many other items on the ‘Going Public’ checklist.
To provide businesses an overview of the key aspects that need to be addressed through this transition, we have divided this exhaustive process into three critical phases.
‘Readiness’ Phase: Initiating and planning a capital markets transaction requires thorough and meticulous planning and adherence to procedures and regulations relating to its issuance. It is important to set up and follow a strategy to plan adequately, anticipate issues and prepare a variety of solutions.
‘During listing’ Phase: This stage entails the period during which the transaction is executed. There are also certain considerations once the kick-off meeting has been initiated. The effort required to prepare an organisation during this key phase is often underestimated, however, it is critical to maximise investor confidence and credibility to ensure that the issue is successful.
‘Post Listing’ Phase: A newly listed entity has the luxury of a whole new beginning. However, along with the success of listing, comes responsibilities, stakeholders’ expectations, regulatory compliances etc.
