EQUITY CAPITAL MARKETS
Equity capital markets issues call for a reliable, skilled and innovative partner.
We regularly advise issuers and manager banks in share and rights issues as well as in listings on the Helsinki Stock Exchange’s main list and First North.
We will coordinate the drafting of the prospectus, handle the due diligence review and support your company in fulfilling its IPO and listing obligations. Several of our lawyers also have a degree in finance, which enables us to make the drafting process easy and smooth both for the issuer and the manager.
As our client, you will also benefit from our efficient project management and processes, our excellent contacts with the authorities and our experience and expertise relating to the book-entry system.
We also have experience and expertise relating to listing on markets outside of Finland. We participate actively in drafting market regulation and model documentation. We have participated in the drafting of the Issuer’s Handbook published by the Finnish Foundation for Share Promotion since 2012, when Nasdaq First North started operating in Helsinki. Latest edition of the Issuer’s Handbook (for a MTF) was published in August 2022. In addition, we have assisted the Finnish Foundation for Share Promotion in the preparation Issuer’s Handbook aimed for the main list of the Helsinki Stock Exchange.
