For management, the IPO process can often be a juggling act performed in a tight timeframe. Consequently, management can sometimes feel like they are drowning in a sea of paper work while also being pulled from pillar to post by different advisors seeking access to managements’ time and to the company’s documentation. In many cases, management will not be familiar with the IPO process and may be dealing with the various IPO documents for the very first time.
As part of a company’s in-house IPO team, and drawing on the experience of our corporate financiers, ex-nomads, qualified accountants and corporate lawyers, all of whom are vastly experienced with the legal, financial and corporate finance aspects of the IPO process, we provide valuable assistance by:
- anticipating and responding to, in consultation with the company, issues raised by advisers;
- acting as sounding board for management throughout the IPO process and streamlining communication with advisers;
- advising on the implementation of an appropriate corporate governance framework;
- providing non-exec and interim/part-time finance directors to the board, when needed;
- responding to questions raised, and obtaining documentation sought, in relation to legal and financial due diligence;
- assisting companies with compiling information for the AIM Admission Documents;
- assisting in preparing financial projections; and
- assisting management with the working capital requirements of the listing process.
