The IPO: a transformation, not a transaction

  • Share

Many fast-growing, private businesses see an IPO as an excellent route to accelerating growth and a step towards achieving market leadership. A successful listing on one of the world’s capital markets, while always the culmination of months or years of hard work, can provide benefits such as:

  • access to financing to complete a strategic acquisition
  • opportunities to expand your business into new markets
  • an exit opportunity for your private equity or other investors
  • improved perceptions of your business and brand with customers, suppliers and employees.

An IPO marks a turning point in the life of a company. Exceptional enterprises don’t view an IPO as simply a financial transaction, bur rather, recognize it as a complex transformation from private to public and start their IPO journey well-informed and well-prepared.
