This webinar covers the main characteristics of Equity Capital Markets. Participants will start by covering the main functions of the capital markets, including the key players, markets, banks and investors. Using real life case studies, they will go through in detail Initial Public Offerings including drafting the prospectus, the roadshow, the book-building, pricing, allocation of shares and price stabilisation mechanisms. Participants will discuss the different types of follow-on offerings, namely private placements, accelerated book-buildings and rights issues as well as public takeovers. Finally, participants will review equity valuation in the context of an IPO pricing and share allocation.
