IPO Consulting

Hybris Corporate Finance supports shareholders in defining the IPO's general strategy, establishing the operation's rationale and the appropriate perimeter, and evaluating the potential value for the company, potential investors, and existing shareholders. 

  • HCF performs a thorough assessment of the client company, identifying any gaps and providing assistance to resolve them quickly and efficiently before the IPO. HCF then begins each consulting project with a deep dive into the client company. Subsequently, it carefully evaluates the IPO process to determine if an initial public offering is indeed the best choice. The goal is to create a compelling equity story for the IPO, presenting a clear value creation strategy through a combination of growth levers, cost optimization, and cash flow improvement, maximizing the client company's chances of achieving its funding objectives. 
  • HCF supports its clients in developing a clear, detailed, and defensible business plan in the eyes of investors, which supports the value creation narrative. A well-founded and sufficiently ambitious plan, supported by clear key performance indicators (KPIs), provides a solid foundation for guidance and communication with investors and analysts. 
  • HCF assists the client company in managing all complexities that may arise among the various stakeholders involved in the IPO process, from the markets and existing shareholders to employees and consultants. Although it is possible to complete an IPO in just six months, a more realistic timeframe to ensure that the company is adequately prepared for its life as a publicly listed entity is 12/18 months. 
  • HCF's systematic and proven approach to IPO preparation encourages corporate management to adopt the investors' perspective.

Club Deals

Hybris Corporate Finance acts as a global coordinator in the organization of Club Deals, investment groups that operates in order to support the development and internationalization of target companies.

The Network counts among its members numerous business angels and family offices, and is therefore able to structure Club Deal operations (i) by selecting potential targets; (ii) subjecting the selected targets to a list of potentially interested investors within Hybris’ network; (iii) creating an ad hoc vehicle for the transaction and (iv) managing all operational and legal aspects of the investment.

The Club Deal represents a more flexible tool for investors than the traditional subscription of a private equity fund as:

  • it is possible to decide whether to participate in the individual operations identified by the Network;
  • it allows to invest even with less significant equity contributions;
  • by syndicating the equity ownership among a group of investors, each reduces its concentration and is thus able to maintain the diversification of its portfolio;
  • an exit date is not explicitly provided, which can therefore occur at the best time to seize the opportunities offered by the market.
