The Irish Stock Exchange has announced a new programme for companies planning to go public over the new few years.
The #IPOready initiative, which is supported by Enterprise Ireland and Invest Northern Ireland, provides firms that are on course for an initial public offering (IPO) with a support programme to teach them about investor relations, raising capital and business management.
“Listing on public markets brings enormous benefits for successful companies. Companies that have listed on the ISE raised €23.5 billion between 2004 and 2013. Eight new companies have listed successfully in the past two years. This programme is designed to support more Irish companies to become IPO ready,” said Aileen O’Donoghue, director of strategy at the Irish Stock Exchange.
