Whether you're considering an IPO, SPAC or direct listing, RSM has the technical know-how to navigate you through the transaction process.

A decade of prosperity following the recovery from the global financial crisis has left both traditional and emerging investors flush with cash for technology company investing. Thanks to these risk-incentivized investors and their cash surplus, capital raises at every stage have more than doubled since the beginning of 2020.

Before COVID-19, there were signs of cooling among M&A and private company valuations, beginning with the failed WeWork IPO in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic has continued this trend into 2020, but big tech companies haven’t stopped buying companies within hot verticals such as cloud, cybersecurity, data analytics and collaboration software.

If now is the right time for your technology company to continue on its growth journey, it’s essential to understand the required steps and potential pitfalls. This is where RSM’s capital markets readiness team can assist.

From IPO financing and SPAC transactions to executing a debt offering or ongoing regulatory reporting, our capital markets readiness team can help you prepare and execute your transaction seamlessly. When you work with RSM, you’ll gain access to advisors who leverage their vast experience to create a customized approach for your organization. Our offerings include:
