A strong basis for your objectives
We offer you all forms of equity financing: starting with IPOs, through capital increases, to re-placements. We provide the corresponding services for each of these phases from a single source.
Implementing equity measures
There are many reasons for raising equity capital - to finance a growth investment or a company acquisition, to improve creditworthiness through a higher equity ratio, to become more independent of debt capital providers, and much more. We support our clients in raising funds via the capital market. We are also the right partner for you if you want to increase shares in listed companies or diversify or disinvest by means of a re-placement.
Together with you, we examine the feasibility of an equity measure
and support you in structuring and implementing the transaction. Our range of services includes in particular
- Cash capital increase with subscription rights
- 10% cash capital increase without subscription rights
- Capital increase against contribution in kind
- Initial public offering (IPO)
- Secondary Placements
Talk to us also about alternatives: If you would like to expand your scope in corporate financing, you can do so by issuing hybrid financial instruments (hybrid forms of equity and debt capital). These include above all:
