Equity Capital Markets Advisory

Helping clients raise funds and monetise stakes through the equity capital markets

Helping clients raise funds and monetise stakes through the equity capital markets

KPMG Equity Capital Markets (ECM) Advisory supports and guides clients through any kind of equity raising in the capital markets – be it an initial public offering (IPO); raising new equity for listed companies via rights issues or placing and open offers; or selling a stake in a quoted company in the public markets via block sales or accelerated transactions.

Our experienced teams offer clients one of the broadest portfolios of expertise available in the marketplace. This extends from deal experienced equity capital markets experts to accounting, regulatory, tax, compliance, corporate governance, debt advisory, investor relations and other technical specialists.

Our transaction approach is bespoke. We assemble multi-disciplinary teams to provide a customised advisory approach for each transaction. Our advice is comprehensive, rooted in decades of deal experience, free of conflicts and completely focused on our clients’ objectives. We work in collaboration with investment banks and corporate brokers, private equity firms, institutional investors and legal advisors to help achieve optimal results for our clients.

Our integrated advisory approach focuses on two key objectives:

  • Value maximisation – We aim to ensure the achieved issue value represents fair value for your company in the context of an IPO or that offering terms are optimised in the context of a follow-on transaction.    
  • Process certainty – ECM transactions are complex to prepare and often include various interdependent workstreams; our expert teams help make certain that these workstreams are completed independent of vested interests, to the highest professional standards, on time and on budget.

Our ECM advisory teams are populated almost exclusively with ex-ECM investment bankers who can guide and advise, drawing on a wealth of experience gained on the other side of the table. We advise clients on: preparedness; documentation; structure; equity story; timing; appointment and management of other parties; execution; investor education; pricing and allocation.

For privately-owned businesses, we work closely with our partners in KPMG’s M&A, private equity and industry groups to provide clients with a comprehensive and independent evaluation of strategic ‘exit’ options. Where appropriate, we will design multi-track processes to test appetite across public market, trade and private-equity investor audiences.

We work closely with KPMG Makinson Cowell to bring clients independent and unfiltered insights from the institutional investor community, to enhance the marketing of a transaction and to bring decades of experience of investor relations best practice to help ensure a smooth transition to life as a listed company.
