IPO Advice | Equity Strategies

Our services

We offer a wide range of advice to companies considering an IPO (an Initial Public Offering) on AIM or ISDX.

Our advice covers a wide range of areas including project management, strategic and financial advice, valuation, the design of management and employee shares schemes through our associate firm The RM2 Partnership, the appointment of non-executive directors and the appointment of other advisers. 

We guide our clients through the often complex and time consuming IPO process. We help short list and select the other advisers to the IPO, which will include a corporate broker and NOMAD, reporting accountants, lawyers, financial PR, research and investor relations. 

We negotiate with third parties on your behalf saving time and money.  

The Equity Strategies team worked hand in glove with the Benchmark management playing a unique and vital role in our journey to AIM contributing to our earliest strategic discussions all the way through to our eventual IPO in December 2013. They helped us short list and select our first class team of advisers, negotiated our advisers’ terms of reference and fees on our behalf, influenced our thinking on valuation and capital structure, designed our employee share option schemes, helped us to select our excellent non-executive directors and above all guided us through the complex and difficult process as an impartial and trusted adviser." Malcolm Pye, Chief Executive, Benchmark Holdings plc
