IPO Services

Undertaking an initial public offering can catapult your company to the next level – yet windows of opportunity open and close quickly. Shenoudacapita can help you leverage the right insights to make the right moves – at the right times.

Access the capital that will fuel your future

If you’re considering taking your company public, this monumental decision will truly transform the way you are currently doing business. While a public company faces greater public scrutiny and regulations, it also secures access to more, and often deeper, sources of capital. How do you get there? And how do you know if it’s the right path to capital for you?

Our dedicated team of professionals specializing in IPOs can advise you as you think through the additional requirements and continuing obligations in advance, and can develop an appropriate plan to help ensure you’re able to own success at every turn.

Shenoudacapital’s clear framework for going public and being public builds on your organization’s strengths and looks beyond the complexity of the IPO itself to make certain that everyday execution moves in lockstep with the broader strategy.

Timeline for becoming a public company

Some say practice makes perfect–and we agree. Our capital markets experience across industries around the world has made finding and moving towards new sources of capital second nature to us–particularly for an IPO. We know from experience that companies need time to transform their practices internally and move the organization into a public company mindset.

If you are thinking about being public in the next 1-2 years, it’s time to get started.

IPO readiness approach

It’s easy to underestimate the amount of time and capital required to bring your company up to public standards. Shenoudacapital can guide you through a thorough assessment of where your company currently stands and then properly assess and identify gaps in your company’s preparedness.

Shenoudacapital’s proprietary IPO Readiness Assessment uses a holistic framework that takes an in-depth look at your company and the sector in which you operate. We’ll identify your company’s position in the market, your equity strategy, potential issues in your going public process, as well as the potential challenges of operating as a public company.

Debt offerings

Fuel your future and jump start your next phase of growth

For organizations looking to jump start their next phase of growth, debt financing can be a good option. However, the windows of opportunity to access the markets open and close quickly, which is why it’s important to have the help of a trusted adviser who can move fast to help you capitalize on opportunities.

As secondary markets have continued to evolve, so have associated reporting requirements and navigating the process can be challenging. It takes careful coordination across all members of your working group and key players.

Whether you’re looking at term loans, asset-based loans, bonds, 2nd liens or mezzanine financing, it’s important to understand the nuances in accounting and reporting requirements to complete financing and post-financing. Shenoudacapital advises clients in these areas as well as helps you understand the debt covenants and related compliance issues.

Our approach, capability and experience provides our clients with greater clarity and insight throughout their strategic decision making process and gives them the confidence to take action. The end result is helping our clients do the right deal at the right time and enabling a process that shortens the deal timeline and increases the possibility of success.
