Maximising value on the IPO Journey
Having an experienced adviser to add insight and expertise to your IPO Journey from the very beginning will give you the maximum opportunity for success.
The IPO Journey – maximising your potential
An IPO is a once in a lifetime opportunity and being well prepared is critical to
success. The process is incredibly complex and your IPO journey is likely to take many
twists and turns. Anticipation, sound advice and thorough planning will therefore be
necessary to meet your listing objective.
Ensuring that the business is being run with a public exit in mind, that the strategy
and execution are clear and that the process is well understood are key considerations.
Areas such as clarity of business strategy, efficient corporate and tax structuring,
corporate governance, external financial reporting and employee incentivisation are all
examples of value drivers which will impact the success of your IPO.
Addressing these areas early before the intensity of the IPO process begins will help
to ensure that everything runs smoothly, disruption to the business is minimised and
the focus is on value enhancement rather than fire fighting. Identifying and fixing
problems while there is time will add value, preserve the timetable and avoid a crucial
window of opportunity being missed.
