Flotation & IPO

Flotation or initial public offerings (IPOs) in Europe and worldwide have seen a recent resurgence. Whether you are considering a flotation on main markets or the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), we can offer experienced independent advice.

Guiding flotations for optimum value

Our dedicated IPO team can take you from initial feasibility to float. We will work through the issues with your team:

  • historical track record
  • balance sheet and cash flow
  • due diligence and working capital
  • business structure
  • management team issues
  • operations
  • tax structuring
  • potential contingencies
  • IAS and GAAP work
  • pre-float share option planning

We can help prepare prospectus and investor presentations, advice on optimum timing, take you through regulatory compliance and procedures and manage other advisors.

The flotation process can be extremely long, complex and absorb a significant amount of management’s time without guarantee of ultimate success. Our substantial experiences in quickly identifying issues that may cause an IPO to be delayed, abandoned or see market value eroded, coupled with our recent track record of executing a wide range of flotations, goes a long way to ensuring a successful outcome.
