We aim to achieve value optimisation and value realisation through the public markets, not just at the IPO but also through further sales of shares once the company is listed. We aim to achieve the optimal exit opportunity for our clients which often involves running a process alongside other exit alternatives e.g. dual track IPO with an M&A process. We aim to provide clear independent advice for you to make informed decisions such as how to educate the broadest possible investor base, optimise offer structure and timing, how much to sell and at what price. We aim to ensure that all banks in the offer syndicate match their promises with delivery. Our data-driven process also helps build consensus across multiple stakeholders.
Management - You are responsible for the construction and delivery of the process for multiple stakeholders, and transitioning the company to a new or broader ownership group of public market investors. Therefore, whether it be an IPO or some form of capital increase, we provide real transparent data to inform independent advice and ensure the success of these capital markets processes. We will optimise management’s limited bandwidth to ensure a maximum return for your time and effort.
Board of Directors - Allowing outcomes with best corporate practice for multiple stakeholders. We like to act for the company so that all stakeholders have full transparency of data and a full audit trail demonstrating the full transition process.
We like to act for entrepreneurs that have built successful businesses and are looking to take the next step with the public markets. We will take your unique vision and align it to the needs of public market investors, working to ensure your value creation is optimised. We are ourselves a relatively new entrepreneurial team and are proud of the pioneering and unique capital markets business we have built here at STJ.
We understand the challenges that are faced by accessing the public markets for privatisation offerings, with our partners having worked on almost every major privatisation offering completed over the past 30 years. We can provide independent advice to design structure to meeting desired objectives and provide data transparency and audit trail to ensure capital markets meet these objectives. Our processes meet the standard of the UK Audit Office, and we are a member of the UK Financial Investments Ltd.’s Capital Markets Adviser Panel.
Institutional Investors - One of the main objectives of our processes is to provide stakeholders with the maximum transparency of investor responses during an offering process, to enable fully-informed decisions to be taken that will balance stakeholder and investor objectives. Our aim is to balance the interests of all shareholders, and our independence allows us to achieve this like no other advisor.
Family Offices - We are very interested in aligning interests of private investors and family offices to assist both in value realisation but also facilitating ownership of public assets. Our philosophy is we believe in the broadest possible ownership of public securities and we aim to facilitate this.
