We support management teams on going public to attract investors and to attract better management.
Going public requires management to be prepared to meet shareholder and market expectations from day one. This includes addressing ongoing compliance and regulatory requirements, operational effectiveness, risk management, periodic reporting and investor relations. We save you time and costs – and increase your chances of success – through a structured approach to your IPO value journey.an IPO is not something you should undertake lightly or as a way to raise funds for short-term needs. To make a success of an IPO means implementing change throughout the business, organization – and even rethinking your corporate culture. As a public company, you will be subject to increased filing requirements, transparency, compliance, scrutiny by investors and analysts, and overall accountability for delivering on promises.
We know how IR should be organized pre- and post-IPO for successful public companies. You need someone to navigate your company though complex laws and regulations that otherwise could be hazardous. The IR team’s function is to be your interface with the capital markets, investors, shareholders and sector analyst groups. This means it should play a central role in allowing the strategic decision makers in organizations of all sizes to get a thorough understanding of sentiment and trends in the wider investment landscape. This is why your Investor Relations (IR) function is so important. We help to deploy your IR strategies to ensure the equity stories are pitched directly to highly targeted audiences by formulating an IR programme that produces more engaging investor focused collateral with excellent storytelling and enables corporates to reach investors directly.

When should you as a company start informing the market? What to write and how to act on the market? The answer is that most of the companies are just too late informing potential shareholders and the market about the image we show of the company. In practice, one should behave early as if one were listed and thus watched. It takes a while before the outside world discovers the company and its benefits [...]
