Capital raising and financing

When determining the most appropriate capital raising or financing option for a business, the establishment fees, risk characteristics, ongoing compliance costs and issues associated with a particular option must be carefully balanced against potential business benefits. Lander & Rogers specialises in advising private and public corporate clients on optimal options for their needs.

We advise clients on both public and private corporate fundraising options, including advising on:

  • all capital raising instruments, including initial public offerings, backdoor listings, private placements, share purchase plans and employee incentive schemes;
  • capital management transactions including renounceable and non-renounceable rights issues, preference share issues, share buy-backs, capital reductions and dividend re-investment plans; and
  • financing, including drafting and negotiation of finance and security documents.

We have extensive experience dealing with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, the Australian Securities Exchange and the Australian Prudential Regulatory Authority on regulatory and compliance issues such as continuous disclosure, listing criteria and regulatory filings.

Whatever the chosen capital raising means, we provide a full range of advice on matters from preparatory restructuring and due diligence through to post listing corporate governance.
