Preparing for The Main Market
Choosing whether to float your company on The Main Market is an important business decision and should be considered carefully, weighing up the benefits and drawbacks for your company and its particular set of circumstances.
What is the first step in the decision making process?
It is essential to appoint financial and stock market expertise to support you and your board in the decision making process. Your company will require an up-to-date business plan and be able to prepare forecasts which show how funding will be used. If you have not already prepared these documents, we can prepare them in conjunction with your company.

Companies considering joining The Main Market should consider the following;
- Appoint and experienced flotation expert to undertake a Main Market feasibility exercise first
- Ensure the company has good financial controls already in place
