Initial Public Offering

Cannings understands the significant challenges for management leading up to an Initial Public Offering (IPO), including the need to manage the competing needs of your growing business and the IPO process, secure the best team to prepare a successful IPO, and create a robust investor relations function ready for your new public company status.

In the lead up to an IPO, we work together with your team of advisers to create a strategic framework for communications, including media engagement, the investor presentation and high level stakeholder relationship building. Importantly, we utilise this period to develop a comprehensive investor relations program and post-IPO strategy to prepare a company for its first 100 days as a publicly listed company.

We offer our services either as a supplement to the in-house investor relations officer or as an effective outsourcing of the development and implementation of the investor relations function. Either way, Cannings is committed to assisting you create a seamless transition from private to public company status.

"Cannings Communications is a strong and reliable team, providing insights that assist in strategic business initiatives."
