We aim to achieve value optimisation and value realisation through the public markets, not just at the IPO but also through further sales of shares once the company is listed. We aim to achieve the optimal exit opportunity for our clients which often involves running a process alongside other exit alternatives e.g. dual track IPO with an M&A process. We aim to provide clear independent advice for you to make informed decisions such as how to educate the broadest possible investor base, optimise offer structure and timing, how much to sell and at what price. We aim to ensure that all banks in the offer syndicate match their promises with delivery. Our data-driven process also helps build consensus across multiple stakeholders.
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.
