Structuring and Managing IPOs

A solution to your
business need

We provide a wide range of services to companies seeking a listing on the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) for their shares or debt through an Initial Public Offering (IPO). 

The Management process of an IPO involves structuring the issue in consultation with the Issuer and managing the process of listing. The relevant functions involved in this process includes:

  1. Advising the Issuer in connection with determining a suitable offer price (equity), interest rate (debt), quantity of shares/debentures to be issued, and total quantum of funds to be raised.
  2. Preparing the Prospectus, Application Forms and the Listing Application to be filed with CSE.
  3. Co-ordinating the approval process of the Issue with the CSE.
  4. Advising the Issuer on the selection of other relevant parties to the issue and Printing and Advertising companies.
  5. Advising the Issuer on a suitable marketing budget and marketing approach for the Issue.
  6. Obtaining commitments for subscription from institutional investors and high net worth individuals.
  7. Advising the Issuer on the basis of allotment (if oversubscribed).


The benefits to the Issuer from these services include the ability to re-structure the Balance Sheet, gain visibility and to raise equity or debt capital and to broadbase ownership of the Company in the case of equity.

Through this range of services, we stand ready to facilitate the transition of successful private companies to valued listed companies whereby the securities of such companies can be freely traded on the CSE.
