Our IPO offering
A complete service
We help companies float on AIM or the Main Market, either as sole sponsor and broker or as part of an IPO syndicate. Our services range from the specialist financial preparatory work needed to become a public company to the positioning of the investment case and marketing to institutional investors.
Our experienced sector teams advise company owners and management teams on the merits of IPO vs alternative options and give honest feedback on the suitability of the business for sustained success as a public company. Our sector experts have the specialist knowledge required to help you present your business to the market in a way which will optimise valuation and minimise risk.
More than IPO
Importantly, as a leading M&A advisor we can also advise on alternatives to IPO such as a trade or Private Equity sale. We are solution agnostic and will always propose the best future ownership solution for the business and its shareholders.
We run regular IPO conferences, giving companies considering an IPO the opportunity to hear directly from public company management teams on their experiences of the IPO process itself and of life on the public markets. Institutional investors also share their views on what they look for when investing in a company at IPO. You can also access our IPO market reports and podcast series in our IPO insights hub.
