How does it work to launch an IPO?
A significant amount of time and preparation is needed for a successful launch of an IPO. Pre-IPO planning typically takes place 5-6 months before the IPO launch, this preparation includes structuring the company as well as organising the corporate fundraising. During this process corporate awareness is developed, helping increase visibility to potential investors.
During the IPO process itself, due diligence and documentation workstreams are conducted, followed by analyst presentations and pre-marketing phase, whilst the bookbuilding, pricing and allocations occur at the end. Post-IPO, investor relations are strengthened and regular market updates in conjunction with periodic roadshows help maintain constructive information flows.
