The listing partners of the Vienna Stock Exchange are capital market specialists that undergo a special selection process. Their task is to provide support for companies of every size in the IPO process. The criteria for being appointed as a listing partner are proven expert competence, practical experience and qualified references.

  • Investment banks conduct extensive analyses of the companies (due diligence), they position the companies on the capital market and ensure a successful share placement. They are also involved in the drafting of the listing prospectus, and must also sign the listing application as an exchange member besides the issuer.
  • Auditors support the candidates in tax issues, financial reporting and with the changeover to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The opportunities and risks determined within the scope of the financial due diligence are presented in the listing prospectus.
  • Lawyers provide support with transformation of the company’s legal form into a joint-stock company (AG) and with the adaptation of the articles of association. The execution of the legal due diligence is one of the key tasks during which the entire contractual relations of the company are analyzed and the legal risks identified.
