IPO (Initial Public Offering)

Designing IPO processes in a controlled way

An IPO can raise the external capital needed for corporate growth, but it is costly and complex. The right preparation is therefore crucial.

Our specialised team with industry experience will support you in all phases of the IPO process and help with the associated structural, operational and regulatory issues – so that you can confidently manage your IPO.

Your concern

Raising capital for a new boost

Companies that want to grow often need to raise external capital. One possible option is to go public on the capital market. This process, however, is very costly and complex. IPO consultation can help evaluate the options and properly prepare the company for an IPO. Many questions therefore arise in the run-up to the IPO: What options do you have for raising capital? You want to acquire fresh capital and have shares in your company traded on the stock exchange for the first time and are wondering how to make your Initial Public Offering (IPO) successful? We provide answers. A successful IPO requires first and foremost a sustainable business model, the right tax structure and an efficient reporting system. This requires that the processes, systems and functions meet the regulatory requirements. Furthermore, you need an attractive equity story that you can back up with relevant financial information and market data, as well as strong management capacities. And of course, your company must be able to deliver what you promise investors.
