A strong basis for your growth and business objectives
Equity enhancement and growth financing
We offer you all forms of equity financing: starting with an IPO, through a possible subsequent capital increase, up to secondary placements. We provide you with 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. Take advantage of the capital market to raise funds.
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:
