Companies going public through Initial Public Offering (IPO)

8TV - Money Matters

KUALA LUMPUR, 28 May 2021 - With the recent increase in market participation, the Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) outlook in Malaysia remains positive, with more companies exploring the listing path on Bursa Malaysia. Since last year, we have also seen a rise in enquiries in relation to getting listed on Bursa Malaysia.

Advance planning and preparation is required for companies wishing to embark on their IPO journey. This will enable companies to strike at the right time.

In determining your company’s suitability for listing, there are two benchmarks your company will be assessed on – market and regulatory.

Here are some considerations for a successful listing:

  • Upfront planning to ensure the right resources and expertise are in place
  • Key areas to look into include:
    - Strategy and business plan
    - Group structure and tax structure
    - Corporate governance, risk management, and internal control
    - Accounting and reporting

In a recent interview with 8TV Money Matters, Tan Yu Min, Audit Partner shared her views on the recent trends in IPO and pre-IPO preparation – watch the interview below (in Mandarin).
