We work with issuers, controlling shareholders, and underwriters covering the field of equity capital markets including structurally complex initial public offerings, and secondary fundraisings comprising share purchase plans, institutional placements and entitlement offers (including accelerated entitlement offers), block trades and capital management transactions comprising dividend reinvestment plans, and capital reductions.
Our team works with local and international business organisations seeking to raise capital to fund organic growth, debt retirement (as part of their capital management programs), and acquisition financing.
Our team appreciates the importance to board and management of ensuring a compliance culture.
We work closely with boards and management teams to gain an understanding of the key compliance issue for their businesses to tailor our advice to address the compliance issues in the context in which they arise to ensure our advice is both reliable and relevant.
We advise regularly on directors' duties and liability, good governance practices including board composition and competency, governance policies, shareholder meeting and effective stakeholder management, and capital management programs.
