Phases of the Capital Raising & IPO cycle

Phase One: Preparing for capital raise/IPO


We can help you with creating the right strategy for funding the next stage in your organisation’s development including stakeholder reporting and engagement to maximise value.


Getting ready to go public is all in the planning.  We will help you identify gaps needing to be addressed to deliver a successful IPO and prepare for life as a listing company encompassing everything from structuring and tax, strategy, management incentives and corporate governance. We will then provide hands-on support throughout, drawing on extensive knowledge to avoid common pitfalls so you can move confidently through the process.

Accounting and financial reporting

We support you through moments of exceptional change and prepare you for any additional disciplines associated with drawing on the public capital markets. We provide independent and objective advice on transaction accounting, accounting change and problem solving.

Phase Two: Execution

Debt and Capital advisory

We have a deep understanding of the debt and capital markets and how best to support you to get the financing you need to grow.  Our financing expertise, lender relationships and independence allow us to be objective and a trusted advisor to help you raise or retain financing to meet your strategic objectives.

Due Diligence

We leverage our breadth of knowledge across multiple jurisdictions to provide assurance services to meet the regulatory and capital markets obligations for a transaction.  Our tech-enabled specialists will support your organisation in enhancing, maturing or remediating your systems, processes and data to ensure reliable information is available to report on financial and non-financial KPIs.

Tax & Legal

Understanding the tax changes that come with an IPO or changes to your capital structure is key to avoiding delays and creating unnecessary risks.  Our global team of specialists across tax including deals, transfer pricing, structuring and international tax, are set up to help you identify strategies that will provide an integrated approach.

Our valuations team can help you identify, analyse and explain the value in your business to investors.



Phase Three: Post IPO

Post IPO execution
Being public adds to the level of scrutiny, from a broader range of stakeholders. We can help you manage risks to retain investor confidence and your company’s reputation.  We can also help you prepare for your first AGM and work with you to ensure you are achieving your strategic goals.
