What We Can Do For You?

Based on our decades of experience on initial public offerings and secondary listings, the most important success criteria are:


  • Rather than viewing the initial public offering as merely a transaction, approach it as a transformational process
  • At least one year prior to the initial public offering, behave and conduct your business as if it is a public corporation.
  • Outperforming competitors on key performance measures prior to, during, and after the first public offering (IPO).

If you take a methodical approach to both the preparation and life after listing, you will be able to cut costs and save time while also reducing the uncertainty you face. This begins between 12 and 24 months before going public with strategic considerations and planning for an initial public offering:

Potential Changes of an IPO after Assessment

We conduct IPO readiness assessments to assist you in identifying the most important changes that must be made.


To begin, we examine the capital agenda as well as the IPO as a potential strategic option. We will assist you to analyse what life will be like as a public company by analysing the benefits and drawbacks of an initial public offering (IPO), as well as comparing the relative merits of a multitrack approach.


Understanding the IPO markets is essential; as a result, we provide you with the data that will assist you in acting at the optimal time, as well as in-depth market analysis that assists you in making that choice. Next, we present to you the data that will assist you in doing so.


We evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of listing a business either domestically or internationally.


Last but not least, we assist you to determine what to prioritize to prepare for life as a public company.

Discussion on audit

Our assessments will enable you to:

  • Prioritise your remediating actions
  • Determine the issues that can be resolved internally and those that might need assistance from outside sources.
  • Focus resources
  • Implement a roadmap for remediation and expedite compliance for potential future IPO
  • Establish a realistic IPO timeline

Why conduct an IPO readiness assessment?

It doesn’t matter if your initial public offering (IPO) is scheduled for the near future or if it’s still just an aspiration; the preparation work might be challenging. A review identifies chances to bring work forward, which helps the management team feel less pressure as the date of the initial public offering (IPO) draws closer. According to our past experiences, only the most well-prepared businesses are in a position to capitalise on the opportunity and fulfil the conditions set by investors.

What does the IPO readiness assessment include?

In most cases, the assessment will focus on key areas that are specific to initial public offerings (IPOs) on the majority of the major stock markets. The report will include insightful and practical recommendations. It will also identify all potential future hurdles, allowing you to begin addressing them beforehand.
