Advising companies through public listings and strategic transactions.

An initial public offering (IPO) or other strategic transaction marks a turning point in the life of a company, providing access to financing and expansion opportunities, exit options for investors, and enhanced brand perception for customers, suppliers and talent.

These transactions are complex transformations that require intricate preparation. IPO- or transaction-bound companies typically run multitrack strategies, considering IPOs, non-traditional options like SPACs and direct listings, mergers and acquisitions, and more. 

As a leader in taking companies public and advising on strategic transactions, EY is equipped to guide you on how to prepare for, and execute, a successful transaction and then deliver on your promises.
