Equity Capital Markets
The ability to raise equity capital is vital to any business wanting to grow or to establish themselves in a new market. Our Equity Capital Markets advises on all aspects of capital raising, share offerings and listing.
Our Equity Capital Markets Expertise
Our Equity Capital Markets team works with clients looking to expand or consolidate their market position.
We advise Australian and foreign issuers, underwriters, funds, advisers, listed investment companies and trusts, issuers and lead managers on the full range of capital market transactions, including initial public offerings, secondary capital raisings, capital maintenance and ongoing compliance.
The work we do for them spans from one-off equity or debt capital market transactions, to acting as their ongoing trusted legal adviser for corporate advisory and Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) compliance work and projects.
Many of our transactions involve parties across country borders. We work closely with overseas firms to provide clients with seamless multi-jurisdictional advice, bespoke to the transaction at hand.
At Maddocks, we have extensive experience advising foreign companies on their IPOs and ASX listings and we continue to act as a trusted legal advisor for the majority of them following their original listing. By managing the full cycle for clients, we have strong knowledge of pre-IPO fundraising, capital management and restructuring, back door listings and delisting.
Our team has also drafted A Guide to Listing & the IPO Process in Australia, which you can download here.
