The Vienna Stock Exchange believes that it is very important to carefully prepare and support companies for an initial public offering. Prior to the initial public offering (IPO), the exchange offers personal meetings at which information is provided, customized IPO workshops and general information events for the employees of a company. Special training courses are held to prepare investor relations officers for their tasks. On the first day of trading, the exchange organizes media activities – accorded with the company – and welcome ads are placed in the printed media. Investors and investment advisors are informed via email and the company is presented on the website of the Vienna Stock Exchange.

Not only for the initial public offering…

After the IPO, the stock exchange continues its support, which includes providing regular information to the investor relations officers of the companies and writing about the company in publications, on its website and presenting it at events held by the Vienna Stock Exchange as well as inviting the company to join the regular road shows the exchange organizes. At these road shows, the management board members present their companies to institutional investors to convince them of the company’s strategy and pitch the shares as attractive investments. These roadshows are organized in cooperation with national and international investment banks several times a year at major financial markets, and in the past years, they have developed into an important platform for international contacts.
