Going Public


At Big Ben, we provide companies that have reached a certain stage of maturity the option of listing on a leading European stock exchange. We have successfully raised capital and listed numerous companies with our partners in Europe, and have a broad range of contacts with the financial  markets.

 


The Process of Going Public

Unlike our competitors, who only offer assistance with the listing process itself, we can actually raise capital for your company on the open market through our road show program should you choose so. No company should start out empty-handed after going public, and we can provide your company with at least 500 shareholders to start with, in addition to introducing you to an investor pool of 80,000 people. This way, you’ll be able to start off with a healthy amount of both capital and liquidity. Running a roadshow also means that you'll be able to cover your listing expenses with the money you raise during the roadshow.

Once the due diligence process is complete, we provide the company with a set of options when it comes to listing. These include:

  • The Right Stock Market: NGM Nordic MTF (a subsidiary of Börse Stuttgart) makes an excellent choice because it allows for mirror-listing on the Börse Stuttgart exchange.
  • Roadshow Alongside listing, roadshows are a great way to raise additional equity capital, if need be. All stock exchanges have a minimum capital requirement, and sometimes, revenue-producing companies fall short of that requirement. If your company already meets the capital requirement set by the stock exchange, there is no direct need for a roadshow. It is recommended, however.
  • Bridge Loans: Some companies are able to fund listings themselves, but listing on a stock exchange can be a burden on your company’s finances. We can connect you with a list of investors capable of granting you a bridge loan to finance the listing process. Opting for a roadshow service in this case is ideal because it will help you raise both the capital needed to list, as well as repay the bridge loan.

A full public listing service, including a roadshow, will usually cost from $200,000 to $350,000. This includes all lawyer fees, listing fees, auditing fees, and commissions. Once listed, we provide support services should you require it.
