Institute of Stock Market and Management is holding IPO Congress annually. The event is aimed at issuers and professional participants of the IPO process in all regions of the Russian Federation, as well as foreign IPO initiators.
The first Russian company entered the international capital markets more than 10 years ago and marked the beginning of a new era in the history of the economic development of Russia. That became possible thanks to new opportunities for attracting large funds and orientation to the western requirements in terms of information transparency and corporate government. The word “IPO” stopped being a fashionable abbreviation and instead evolved into an important strategic goal for Russian big business. Although the number of companies attracting financing on the stock market is growing rapidly, there is still a great number of companies who hesitate to issue stocks. A barrier to participation in public capital markets in the past has been handling risk as well as the complexity of the IPO mechanism. The mission of the coming Congress is to elaborate a formula of the most effective and available IPO for companies of mid capitalization who already plan entering an IPO or are in the process of making the decision.
With the IPO Congress experts discuss a number of questions connected with preparing and initiating a new issue: how to make a company investing attractive? How not to miss the moment favorable for an IPO? How to develop an effective strategy of the informational support before and after an IPO? What factors should one take into account while choosing an underwriter, financial and legal advisers? One of the key aspects of the Congress programme is the specific character of attracting investments on the Western and Asian stock exchanges: where would listing be the most profitable? What are the existing differences in the listing requirements?
These questions are viewed and discussed by the experts of corresponding regulatory structures: the Federal Financial Markets Service, Bank of Russia, Ministry of Finance of the RF, Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of the RF, Federal Antimonopoly Service, representatives of Russian and foreign trading floors, heads of the largest banks-underwriters, investment companies, insurance, legal and consulting firms, rating and PR agencies, and others.
The Russian IPO Congress is the first large scale forum devoted to the problems and prospects of IPO organization by the Russian companies. This largest forum is held annually. For four years of workings the Russian IPO Congress has proven itself to be a highly qualified central event devoted to strategic and organizational issues of the IPO mechanism.
