A new manual from SIX Swiss Exchange is a practical guide for potential issuers that summarizes all the key
information regarding an initial public offering (IPO). The new
"IPO Guide Schweiz"
(available only in German) was drawn up together with partners with significant experience in the Swiss capital
market, such as Zürcher Kantonalbank,
Walder Wyss or
GIRAS (Swiss Society of Investor Relations Agencies).
To ensure the IPO is a success
The "IPO Guide Schweiz" deals with the entire process of an IPO: the listing requirements, the
individual phases and the expectations after the IPO. It also presents two specific case studies. Along the
milestones not only future issuers but also other parties involved find out everything there is to know about IPOs.
"We are pleased that we have been able to involve proven IPO experts as partners for the newly published IPO
guide", says Valeria Ceccarelli, Head Issuer Relations at SIX Swiss Exchange. "This compact manual
gives companies planning an IPO an overview of the success factors and measures covering the aspects of going public,
and therefore supports them in efficiently raising capital with a successful IPO."
An IPO is still one of the most important sources of equity funding for companies to secure future, independent growth.
With its globally networked and well-functioning capital market, Switzerland has the ideal conditions for a listing.
As an important pillar of the Swiss financial center, SIX Swiss Exchange provides potential issuers with comprehensive
personal support and enables them to gain access to well-capitalized international and Swiss investors.
