In addition to partnering with public companies, Abernathy MacGregor helps companies going public. We have helped companies from many industries – including a leading e-commerce platform and one of the world’s largest private investment firms – prepare for and execute their initial public offerings (IPOs).
We know the IPO environment – and how to execute the right communications strategy to support a successful IPO and transition to being a public company. We help develop the company’s investor positioning; build its IR infrastructure; formulate policies for public company communications; evaluate and select a stock exchange; train senior executives for analyst meetings, media interviews, the investor roadshow and quarterly earnings calls; and provide support for pricing and listing day.
Our IPO practitioners bring a holistic approach to each client engagement. We anticipate and understand the unique needs of each of our client’s constituents during the IPO process, including analysts looking to build and refine their models, employees concerned with what working for a publicly traded company might mean for them, and customers interested to learn how the IPO might impact the products and services they purchase. Our focus is to ensure a successful IPO and establish a communications infrastructure and corporate narrative that will enable our client’s aftermarket stock price to be commensurate with its operational performance and growth prospects.
