Finding the right partners is essential for a successful initial public offering. The listing partners of the Vienna Stock Exchange are capital market specialists such as investment banks, lawyers and auditors. Their task is to accompany and provide support to companies of every size during the initial public offering process. Lawyers and auditors start working with the company in an early phase of the initial public offering, for example, to assist with changes to a company’s legal form or with internal preparations (such as a changeover to international accounting standards). The investment bank is selected at a so-called “beauty contest”. In many cases, they continue to work together also after the placement of the shares and the start of trading, but this is not a statutory requirement.
