Delivering shareholder value via a dual-track transaction process
We were selected to work alongside Lazard Financial Advisors, Goldman Sachs and Numis Securities to support the client and its management team through the complex and protracted process of floatation, by acting as a bridge between the banks, the advisors and the business.
Late in the IPO process, shareholders expressed a desire to assess viable trade sale buyers. As a result a dual-track programme was mobilised, and our team was responsible for supporting and readying the business for either outcome.
Provision of data rooms, detailed governance – with a light touch where necessary – and a defined ‘product-based’ set of deliverables were captured, along with key internal and external dependencies and a robust timeline.
Our team made sure that the right conversations happened at the right time, and leveraged the governance and controls they’d designed to ensure the appropriate mitigation of risk throughout.
