IPO Advisory

Guiding our clients through the IPO process including banker selection, maximizing visibility prior to the roadshow and developing post-IPO communications strategies.

An initial public offering is one of the most effective ways for a company to obtain the financial resources needed to advance their product and commercial objectives.  Having participated in more than 200 IPOs, we know the importance of beginning the IPO process at least nine months prior to the projected pricing date. During this critical period, we work with clients to shape a compelling story and establish relationships with members of the financial community through organized roadshows and conference participation. Lazar Partners supports our clients across all aspects of the IPO process, including assistance with:

  • Providing independent and unbiased advice in selecting the investment banking syndicate
  • Developing key messages
  • Creating or refreshing the corporate website
  • Developing or refining corporate presentation from both a content and design perspective
  • Preparing a list of key questions and responses
  • Speaker training and presentation review sessions with management team
  • Creating exclusive investment banker, buy-side and sell-side targets
  • Organizing roadshows with members of the buy-side and sell-side
  • Generating investor conference speaking opportunities
  • Obtaining feedback from the financial community following meetings
  • Key opinion leader engagement with the buy-side and sell-side
  • Using media relations to further increase awareness among target audiences
