What we do
STJ combines a depth of equity experience from specialist capital markets professionals and applies proven proprietary techniques to empower our issuer clients, leading to more informed decision-making on the key issues in IPOs, capital increases and other equity and equity-linked transactions.
An equity offering process is generally a “mission critical” process for a management team and the other stakeholders, in a field where the team often has limited or no previous direct experience. Material value can be lost (or gained) and the entire process can be both costly and extremely time consuming. STJ will greatly enhance management decision-making and efficiency during an offering process.
Every share offering is an auction process, and the higher the quantity and quality of educated buyers, the better the results of the auction. We set in place the deal architecture and proven processes to maximise investor coverage, and deliver the best result, with a transparent execution process that harnesses the strength of each bank in the offering syndicate. STJ provides additional and complementary independent services to help achieve an optimal outcome on any proposed offering.
While in the majority of cases we design and execute an offering process from inception, we have on occasion been retained as late as immediately prior to launch and still added significant value.
The only mistake we made on our IPO was not hiring STJ Advisors before the lead bank, to gain their insights before the early decisions were taken” Private Equity Executive, European IPO Shareholder
