The public markets remain a key feature of the landscape for any company looking to raise funds, access a new capital base, create liquidity for owners or simply raise its profile and expand into new markets. This can be as part of an exit, raising growth capital or as part of an M&A strategy.
As a business assessing the public markets you will need to consider both the opportunities for increased profile and liquidity, but also the reporting and compliance requirements that accompany a listing, which can be costly and time consuming for management.
