In the immediate aftermath of the financial crisis, capital
raising was conducted with a hint of panic for most companies
in the market. This impending sense of danger hung around for
over two years, but there is much more optimism now.
More and more companies are looking to raise capital for
more progressive means, principally to fund internal growth and
acquisitions. Naturally, some companies still need to refund
indebtedness, but the outlook is largely positive.
Debt has been scarce over the last four years, but it can be
accessed under the right structures. Equity issues are
increasing too and structured products are finding a place in
the market too.
This IFLR supplement aims to present all the legislation,
regulation, rules and legal issues for companies looking to
raise finance around the world in one place.
Whether is it to make acquisitions, grow existing
operations, repay debts or keep up with operating costs,
companies need to keep abreast of the changing capital raising
market. This guide will keep the market up to date via
jurisdictional specific legal chapters.
The guide is published in association with ICMA and will be
mailed to a select list of its members.
We hope you find this guide to be a helpful resource and one
that you will turn to often.
