IPO: the right option for your business?

  • Share

Do not underestimate the effort required for a successful Initial Public Offering (IPO). It can take months, if not years, of hard work.  And it might not be the best option for your business.

It's important to evaluate the possible transactions that could be a stepping-stone to an IPO. Some might even be an attractive alternative to a public listing.

They include:

  • Sale to a strategic buyer through the M&A market
  • Sale to a Private Equity firm
  • Private placement (often an important pre-IPO step)
  • Joint ventures and strategic alliances
  • Refinancing

We can help you to assess each of these options. The IPO path you take must be the right one for your business.
