Capital market transactions
A company’s capital market transactions require careful planning and precise execution. The experts of Equilor Corporate Finance have not only decades of experience, but also up-to-date knowledge of the regulatory and market environment as well as of public offerings, corporate bond issues, and other capital market transactions. Apart from providing professional assistance, our experts also help you consider various points of view and weigh the different options.
PUBLIC OFFERING OF SHARES
Introducing a company’s stocks to the stock exchange is an important milestone in the life of any company. The decision of the owners to raise the additional funds necessary for the operation of the company in a public form, with the involvement of small and institutional investors as shareholders, will without doubt open a new chapter in the history of the company.
There are several advantages to having shares listed on the stock exchange:
- a public offering allows more investors to be reached, and their concentration becomes lower
- a public offering has significant marketing and PR value
- the shares owned by the shareholders become liquid and subsequently easier to sell
- trust in the company may become stronger, and its chances to obtain bank financing may improve
The public offering of shares is a process that requires complex and multi-layered expertise as well as extensive investor networking. Its professional planning and execution will fundamentally determine the success of the transaction.
Our staff has access to a wide range of domestic and international investors, which has enabled us to participate in the successful public offerings of several companies in recent years.
PUBLIC OFFERING OF BONDS
The public issue of bonds typically offers an attainable alternative to bank financing for bigger companies that wish to diversify their capital structures. As a result of the existence of diversified investors, bondholders have significantly lower control on operation in comparison with banks, while the terms of the bond issue (duration, collateral, size and timing of issue) may be designed flexibly, adjusted to the individual characteristics of companies.
If you are considering the public issue of shares or bonds, our expert team is happy to be at your disposal.
The advisors of Equilor Corporate Finance provide assistance in the selection of the bond type (private or public issue), considering the financial standing, strategy, and operational peculiarities of the given company. Upon our customers’ request, we determine the amount of the funds necessary to achieve the company’s objectives and estimate the maximum amount of funds that may be raised on the market. We identify potential investors and prepare the financial calculations and documentation necessary for executing the transaction. In addition to our sales network—which has wide-ranging experience in the capital market—we support the successful implementation of the fundraising process from its outset until the closure of settlements.
In recent years, Equilor’s Corporate Finance team has participated as the leading organizer in the successful implementation of several public offerings of corporate bonds. This performance has led Equilor to become the most active transaction advisor in recent times in the Hungarian corporate sector.
