IPO Overview

When the IPO window of opportunity opens, winning companies are ready. While not all businesses are suited to life in the public eye, for many fast-growing private companies, an IPO can raise the capital needed to accelerate growth and achieve market leadership.

An IPO is the beginning of a new and dynamic journey for your company; it is also a long and complex process involving a multitude of advisors, and the time commitment required from senior management cannot be underestimated.

At EY, we understand these pressures. We also know what a successful IPO looks like. Our research has confirmed that the most successful IPOs, with a smooth transaction and thriving aftermarket, are the best prepared.
