Initial Public Offerings

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.
