#IPOready will educate companies on the requirements of listing on the ISE and develop their ability to attract domestic and international investors. It is being organised by the ISE with the support of Enterprise Ireland and includes lectures from corporate finance experts, investment practitioners and academics from DCU; coaching from mentors; and advice from senior ISE figures, entrepreneurs and leaders from Irish quoted companies.
Aileen O’Donoghue, Director of Strategy at the ISE, said, “We’re delighted with the level of interest show in #IPOready. A key challenge for our economy is to build companies beyond the start-up and growth phases into fully-scaled, substantial publicly quoted companies. The companies participating in this programme include really exciting businesses which operate in sectors that have significant potential to grow and develop. We hope to see some of these companies take their place amongst our listed companies in the future and we believe this programme can play a crucial part in helping them to do so.”
Speaking about #IPOready, Anne Heraty, Chief Executive of CPL Resources (CPL), said that the structure of the programme would provide effective, relevant support to companies that are considering an initial public offering (IPO).
She added, “CPL has received many benefits from listing on the Irish Stock Exchange, not only did it provide access to international investors and capital, but it also raised the profile and brand awareness of CPL to a level which we would not have achieved as a private company.“
