Ipreo participated at the IPO&SPO Forum in Moscow

The Institute for Development of Financial Markets held IPO&SPO Forum on September 22, 2011 at the MICEX Conference Hall in Moscow.

IPO&SPO-2011 Forum was designed to address IPO challenges and prospects for Russian companies during turbulent market conditions.

Andrey Demchenko, a CEO of Institute for the Development of Financial markets, said: “This year has proven difficult one for Russian IPOs. However, Russia still presents great opportunity for issuers and global investors alike.”

Forum participants had the chance to receive information about further IPO & SPO market developments from regulators, issuers, MICEX, and financial consultants.

Alexandre Bykov, who represents Ipreo in Russia and CIS, gave practical advice to conference participants:

  • Deciding where to float your company is an important decision
  • Diverse shareholder base provides a ’safety net’
  • Capital can disappear as quickly as it come
  • Good communication and transparency are necessary to maintain long term investment
  • Perceptions should be monitored on a regular basis

IPO&SPO-2011 Forum speakers and participants were professionals involved in IPO and SPO processes - representatives of the Federal Financial Markets Service, Bank of Russia, Russian Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Economic Development, Federal Antimonopoly Service, as well as issuers, bank underwriters, legal and consulting companies, rating agencies, MICEX, and investment companies.
