IPO

Reliance helps our clients in connection with IPOs (Initial Public Offering), which for every company is an intense and challenging process.

We support our clients in every step of the IPO process – from the early preparation process, during the months leading up to the ‘intention to float’ announcement and the filing for a public listing, during the offer period and listing day, and during the early months as a public company. We approach IPOs in a holistic manner.

We partner with our clients – in collaboration with investment banks and financial advisers – to develop a compelling equity story, investment case and narrative, and articulate it within relevant regulatory boundaries and guidelines. We advise on developing the key communications and investor relations messages, and content, relevant for external and internal stakeholders, including vision and mission as well as all relevant IR communications tools.

Once listed, we help our clients navigate in the stock market so they avoid making costly mistakes.

We maintain relationships with other relevant stakeholders specializing in IPOs, including investment banks, law firms and financial journalists, and make use of our extensive international network in connection with international IPOs.
