Capital Markets

In the public eye

Companies often finance organic and inorganic growth by going to the capital market where both shares and bonds can be issued. An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is also often a valid exit option for private equity investors and their portfolio companies. IPOs are transactions that attract a high degree of public attention and are extremely critical from a regulatory and timing perspective. The people involved cannot afford to make any mistakes.

Many questions arise as a consequence. Would you like to raise additional equity or debt capital? Would you like to boost your company’s profile, especially among foreign investors? What do you need to look out for if you want to go public or have a business unit listed on the stock exchange? What are the benefits of capital market advisory services? And how can you meet the multitude of capital market requirements right from the start?

Whether it’s your first IPO or you are an experienced capital market participant, we are your contact for all capital market issues

Have you already checked the (IPO readiness) of your company? Regardless of how far along you are in the process, PwC’s Capital Markets team will establish your company’s transaction and capital market readiness. We assess or prepare specific financial information for the prospectus, for instance historical financial information such as carve-out financial statements. As your IPO adviser, we naturally also evaluate the risk associated with an IPO. Our comfort letters are essential for banks and other capital market participants. But even in companies that are already listed on the stock exchange, capital increases, placements of share packages and the change of stock exchange segments can pay off for the growth strategy. We put together a team of experts individually tailored to your needs for each capital market transaction. We are committed to providing independent and objective capital market advice – no matter how complex your questions are. We work in partnership with your investment banks and other advisers.

We will assist you from the assessment of readiness for the stock exchange, from the initial communication to the actual implementation.
