Initial Public Offerings (IPOs)

For organisations looking to raise capital for expansion and growth via the public markets, PwC provides advice on Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) and finance raising. By acting as a sponsor alongside your broker, we provide advice on markets/exchanges, regulatory authorities and issues and managing other advisers.

PwC also acts as an independent financial adviser, free of any inherent or perceived conflicts of interest, when investment banks have been appointed as sponsors and are seeking to provide further integrated services (e.g. underwriting services). In such circumstances, we provide advice on the above matters independent of the appointed sponsor or broker.
