Whether your company is looking to access capital to continue to grow, or whether you’re aiming to raise your company’s profile or explore exit strategies for investors, entering the capital markets via an initial public offering (IPO) could be a viable option.
An IPO is a transformational event for any business and you need to be ready to deal with the additional demands that being a public company brings. While a public company faces greater public scrutiny and regulations, it also secures access to more, and often deeper, sources of capital. How do you get there? And how do you know if it’s the right path to capital for you?
Preparation is key
Preparation can make the difference between success and failure, so the sooner you start to plan the better. First and foremost, you need to know why you’re going public, considering the best timing thereof and identify what you should focus on in terms of the right preparation for a journey that, if done properly, can be an exciting – and lucrative – step for your business.
And don’t forget, your IPO is not the ultimate objective in itself – it’s only the beginning of your journey as a listed company.
