An IPO is a strategic corporate decision to bring the issuer many advantages such as additional sources of finance, better visibility, a source of liquidity for shareholders, or a more objective valuation of the company.
A company joining the stock market, however, has to carry out a rigorous process and familiarise itself with a completely new working environment. This course examines the main aspects to be taken into account to moderate the cultural change that must be undertaken both internally and externally when they join the market.
Professional employees at companies that are undertaking the IPO process or have already arranged the listing: senior officers and board members, management and middle management involved in the company's habitual relations with the market and market operators (Finance Department, Legal Advisory, General Secretariat, Management Control, Investor Relations, Corporate Communications, Institutional Relations and Strategic Planning).
The course constitutes an initial approach to the main factors affecting the environment of a company joining the stock market, such as the need to familiarise itself with market functioning, the regulator (CNMV) and the main parties involved (brokers and analysts), the advisability of operating a rigorous Investor Relations policy or the additional importance of communication and corporate governance.
This is an 8.5-hour course over two consecutive mornings, with the opportunity for networking with employees of other companies in the same situation.
