Choosing to float your business on a stock market is one of the most important decisions you can make. You need a team who has been there and done it many times.
A wide range of factors need to be taken into account when planning such a key move – Are the public markets right for you? Which market is best for your business? What are the regulatory requirements you need to follow? How will you retain control of the direction of the business once its shares can be publicly traded?
Our experienced team are on hand to offer timely, commercially-focused advice at every step of the way.
We have extensive expertise in bringing companies to the Official List and the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange as well as to ISDX (formerly PLUS Markets).
Thanks to close working relationships in the sector, we can help introduce your management team to experienced brokers, NOMADS, sponsors and other advisers to assist with the demands of becoming a public company.
We can assist on the full range of issues encountered by those looking to float their businesses including:
- AIM Rule / Listing Rule compliance
- Legal due diligence
- Management incentive schemes
- Placing agreements
- Pre-IPO fund raisings
- Prospectus Rule compliance
- Regulatory matters
