IPO consulting – Going public

Are you planning an initial public offering (IPO) in order to open up new opportunities for your company? At Rödl & Partner interdisciplinary consulting teams including lawyers, tax consultants, auditors, environmental experts and real estate specialists work together with our corporate finance professionals to provide you with ideal support.
The unique step of an IPO to raise equity capital has to be well thought-out and planned. We work together with you to create a tailored issuance concept for your successful placement on the stock exchange and provide comprehensive consulting services to answer all the relevant questions on the subject of going public and more.
If you do not want to raise equity capital through the stock market, but wish to acquire outside capital, the issuance of a bond is possible, i.e. an initial bond offering (IBO). This method is an alternative to bank financing and is also a stepping stone to a fully-fledged IPO. Further information on our consulting services for the issuance of bonds is available in our competence center for bonds for the German Mittelstand.
The way to the stock market is complex both for an IPO or IBO. Our experts for going public will develop the right concept for the successful placing of your company on the stock exchange in close consultation with you and with the assistance of our modular services.
