An IPO has often in the past been viewed as the exit strategy for start-ups, but more and more companies are considering alternative strategies such as M&As. For South East Asian companies, a trade sale could result in larger financial returns than going public especially if the acquirer has a strong strategic interest in the region.

The Forum will look at the pros and cons of exiting via an IPO or M&A – our speakers will share their experience of assisting companies in the region with their exit strategy of choice and cover:

  • Key points for consideration for business owners when considering an IPO vs M&A
  • Comparison of the different listing venues both regional and international
  • Different methods of valuing a company
  • Case studies

The Forum is in association with the Department for International Trade and sponsors include Reed Smith.
