“IPO” stands for initial public offering, meaning your company will offer its shares for trading on the stock exchange for the first time in order to secure capital for itself. A traditional IPO is a long and time-consuming process. But there are alternatives: In a reverse takeover, for example, a private company acquires a company that is already listed, indirectly going public itself.
A company is ready to go public once it can meet specific legal, organizational, and economic criteria for a stock exchange listing. Only the legal framework is required. A listed company must have one of the three following legal forms:
Sufficient financing, strong leadership, and a clear strategy for the future are key to successfully going public. An IPO is a long-term undertaking and should be planned well in advance. Preparing for an IPO typically takes about two years. During the process, investors are brought on board, a prospectus is drawn up, regular due diligence is performed, and investment banks price the shares.
To achieve IPO readiness, a company must undergo various structural changes. Specific requirements apply here, including switching accounting to IFRS. A company can also work towards IPO readiness for the purpose of future security, even if it does not intend on going public any time soon. Using KPMG’s IPO checklist, you can get a first impression of your company’s IPO readiness by answering 33 detailed questions. Experienced KPMG employees will support you through any challenges.
Your company is IPO ready. To ensure a successful IPO, your company must be ready for the capital market, i.e. it must be able to raise sufficient capital on the stock exchange. A convincing business model, favorable market position, and investor demand for your product/service are crucial to success on the capital market.
