We understand the challenges that are faced by accessing the public markets for privatisation offerings, with our partners having worked on almost every major privatisation offering completed over the past 30 years. We can provide independent advice to design structure to meeting desired objectives and provide data transparency and audit trail to ensure capital markets meet these objectives. Our processes meet the standard of the UK Audit Office, and we are a member of the UK Financial Investments Ltd.’s Capital Markets Adviser Panel.
An IPO is a “mission critical” process, in a field where management and major shareholders frequently lack previous direct experience.
Often a sales process involves more than one path, where both private buyers and an IPO are pursued at the same time.
We use the same proven techniques from our IPO processes to get the same results for follow-on offerings and capital increases.
STJ has formed a “Research Advisory” group to help educate sponsors and corporate management teams on the key areas of focus for equity markets, highlighting areas they may want to consider to help position their business for maximum value.
STJ provides our issuer clients with the expertise, tools, data and analysis needed to unlock value in this technical area of capital markets.
Retail investors are an attractive source of long term equity for many proposed offerings, and are generally overlooked by banks and other advisors that are motivated to only deal with institutional investors.
STJ provides independent debt advisory services in through its association with Marlborough Partners, a leading European debt advisory firm.
