Mechanics of a Global Equity Offering is a clear, accessible look at the key issues involved in a global equity offering, including:
  • which capital markets to tap, and how (public offering vs. private placement);
  • which stock exchanges to list on;
  • structuring the underwriting syndicates;
  • due diligence questions; road shows and marketing activities;
  • whether to disclose forecasts;
  • which lawyers should give `negative assurance' as to the disclosures in the prospectus; and
  • how to negotiate representations, `outs', indemnification and other terms of the underwriting agreements.

    A group of leading securities practitioners from different capital markets--the US, Hong Kong, France, Canada, Japan and Australia--take the reader through each stage, using a case study of a global IPO of an emerging markets issuer to illustrate the process.

    This book is a road map for securities lawyers, investment bankers, and senior finance officers of companies contemplating a global equity capital-raising exercise.
