Facing the expectations of public markets
This survey was carried out in the months of September to November 2007 on behalf of Deloitte member firms in the CIS. Our objective was to ascertain the knowledge level of CIS businesses on fundraising, and in particular, Initial Public Offerings (IPO). The survey explored the reasons for companies to choose a certain listing venue or investor base for their shares. It also asked newly-public companies to name the biggest challenges they faced in preparation for IPO.
