The decision to take your entity public can have a multitude of benefits but is not something that should be entered into lightly.
To maximise these benefits your entity needs to ensure:
- That your best foot is being put forward leading up to, and come, listing date.
- That process, systems, and other internal infrastructure has been established to ensure financial reporting and corporate governance practices will operate seamlessly going forward – in the name of protecting shareholder value.
To achieve this, an entity needs to go into a potential listing process with its eyes wide open, in particular:
(i) That the process of getting to listing date can be lengthy, challenging, and dynamic.
(ii) That external experts across a range of diverse disciples and specialities will likely need to be engaged.
To overcome these challenges, an entity’s best bet is to align itself with a trusted expert adviser that has a proven track record in assisting entities through the listing process.
