NZX Master Class

As many of you will know Xero took the unusual step of becoming a public company almost from day one.  Over the near 5 years we’ve been listed we’ve learned a lot and we’d like to share that with other listed companies and those considering significant fund raising over the next year or so.

So, in conjunction with the NZX we’re holding a workshop to go through our experiences. Here are the details:

NZX IPO Masterclass – The Xero Listing Story

Wednesday 23 May 2012 Xero – 3 Market Lane – Wellington (opp NZX Centre)

NZX would like to invite you to attend the NZX IPO Master-class: The Xero Listing Story, to be held in Wellington on 23 May 2012.

Many of you have watched the Xero story. Xero raised growth capital and listed in 2007 as a start up. Since listing Xero has built a global team, carried out a number of subsequent strategic placements raising growth capital in excess of $85M, and seen their market cap increase significantly in a short time frame.

The Xero team are keen to share their experiences in an open and interactive masterclass format. This session is targeted at directors and senior executives of any company, in any industry, that is considering raising significant growth capital over the next two years.

Specifically the Xero IPO team will cover:

  • Reasons for accessing the public equity markets over other types of funding
  • Pre IPO process and key decisions
  • IPO process and the role of advisers
  • Life after listing
  • Investor relations, communications strategy and the role of social media
  • Post IPO capital raising – Strategic Placements and Share Purchase Plans
  • Acquisitions
  • Growth capital raising landscape in 2012; some new opportunities

Presenting will be Rod Drury, CEO, Xero; Ross Christie, Partner, Cameron Partners; Dean Oppenhuis, Partner, Bell Gully
