Planning to get Listed? A major decision
Going public is the ambition of many growing companies. It corroborates past achievements and propels future growth by access to a more widely distributed capital. NSE’s SME Exchange provides the right launch pad for companies with strong business models and high growth potential. However, going public is a paradigm shift for a private company as it would be required to:
- Appreciate the need to meet initial and sustained expectations of external investors
- Appreciate the need to have a team, organization structure and internal processes which bring about investor credibility and capability to efficiently manage the capital market processes and increased level of scrutiny, reporting, compliances and regulatory obligations;
It is therefore critical that before considering a public listing, you have realistic awareness of your current level of preparedness and what needs to be done to become a successfully listed company.
