Initial Public Offerings

We offer companies across sectors, regions, and transaction sizes a unique and proven approach to IPO communications – from start-up to grown-up.

An IPO is one of the most intense, high-profile events a company will ever undertake.

A complex set of participants, a rigid process, potential external detractors, and a new universe of stakeholders all need to be managed. Strategic communications help tailor the equity story, build support for the offering, and sustain momentum for life as a listed company.

Our Approach

We help craft a strong equity story that resonates with institutional investors, while guiding clients through the rigorous IPO process – from filing, the roadshow, listing day, to post-IPO communications and beyond.

Kekst CNC is the global leader in advising clients on IPOs and secondary fundraisings. Our team has advised companies in over 40 countries, helping them and their advisors raise well over $200 billion.
