On the market

RSM is ready to help your listed company thrive, whether that’s through assistance with acquisitions, fundraising, tax and compliance, or any other forms of support from within our comprehensive suite of services.

Once you are listed, the key question now is ‘what next’? Post-flotation, there are two key paths a listed company can take to fulfil its corporate strategy:

Secondary fundraising

A company can issue additional shares via a secondary offering or rights issue, providing itself with capital expansion without incurring any debt. This ability to quickly raise large amounts of capital from the market is a key reason many companies seek to go public.

Acquisitions/reverse acquisitions

Many companies come to market with a ‘buy and build’ strategy. Whether you have identified your acquisition targets or are still in the process of drafting a shortlist, you need to be aware of the rules and regulations surrounding listed companies making acquisitions. The size and value of the acquisition will determine what information needs to be presented to your shareholders to gain their approval.

At RSM we are well placed to help our listed clients achieve their corporate ambitions. Alongside the on-going compliance services our audit and tax specialists can provide, the RSM capital markets team regularly assists listed companies in making acquisitions and raising additional funds in their capacity as reporting accountants.

Our services include:

  • reporting accountant services in relation to public documents;
  • financial due diligence services on target companies; and
  • enlarged group working capital reviews.
