We know green shoes and red herrings too
Aiming to take your company public? We are well versed in guiding our companies to the public markets. We'll bring our experience to bear to maximize the success of your IPO.
It’s a confusing and complex process that requires a thoughtful strategy beginning years before the IPO. When do joint books make sense? How does one ensure the banking team is fully aligned with the company? Is a low float IPO right for my company? Which investment banks will really be long-term partners? We can help. We can help you determine which underwriting syndicate makes the most sense for you, and how best to structure their roles and responsibilities. We know when and how best to build a relationship with the buy side mutual funds, and what to share with the research analysts as you position yourself for an IPO and after you are public. We’ve been on IPO pricing committees and audit committees and even at the printer and the road show breakfast in Milwaukee. We’re looking to add to our list of successes - want to join us?
