Capital Markets

PwC Capital Markets has extensive experience in assisting companies to list on Oslo Børs

Going public is, in every sense, a transformational event. You need to be confident it is the right strategy for funding the next stage in your company's development. You will need to consider whether your organization is prepared to accept the additional disciplines that come with being a public company, and if so, which marketplace will provide the best valuation and access to capital at the right time.

A listing process or an IPO is a key strategic process for creating and enhancing the value of your business. As the process becomes ever more complex and increasing in size the expectations of value capture have also increased. Identifying a clear value creation potential for the transaction will ensure success and deliver shareholder value after the transaction is completed.

We can help you evaluate the benefits of becoming a public listed company, assess your readiness for a listing, prepare your business for being a public company and navigate every phase of the complex process. PwC offers a broad suite of services for both Norwegian and international companies considering a listing, bringing together the right team from across PwC with a deep bench of skills and experience.

How can we help you?

IPO Readiness

Planning is the key to a successful and efficient listing. Our readiness framework focuses on protecting, evidencing and creating value. In order to succeed, all aspects should be considered, interdependencies understood and the ability to deliver on the planned timeline assessed.

Our IPO Readiness assessment results in a report presenting a "gap analysis" of critical paths of action required to execute a well managed IPO. This report will help you gain overview and insight in which functions and processes need to be implemented or improved in order to execute a successful listing.

IPO Execution

Executing a successful IPO or listing is the culmination of a long, complex process. From strategy, accounting, reporting, financial systems, governance, sustainability, media and investor relations, to treasury and financial risk management, legal, tax, HR, technology — every piece of the puzzle must be in place and connected..

PwC’s dedicated team of capital markets professionals are here to help and make the task at hand an easier experience for you. 

We have deep knowledge and understanding of the rules and regulations — and a successful history of working on both international and domestic IPOs. 

We have been involved in the majority of IPOs on Oslo Børs in recent years, and our experience will benefit you through every stage of your IPO preparation process.

Post IPO Support

Your IPO or listing is just the beginning. Once listed, your company will be under far greater public and regulatory scrutiny, with a wider universe of stakeholders, associated risks and obligations to manage.

You will need to ensure that you have robust functions, processes and procedures in place to fulfill your obligations as a public company, while managing potential risks to protect your company's reputation, safeguard your credibility and retain investor confidence. We can support you post IPO on a wide range of public company matters, including financial reporting, corporate governance, ESG reporting, risk management, investor relations as well as in future capital transactions.

Bond Listing

Bond listings on Oslo Børs is an efficient and cost effective process compared to bonds listings in other markets as there is not common to have any requirements for public ratings, due diligence or comfort letters. Bond documentation provided by Nordic Trustee, which acts as the trustee in most bonds issued in Norway, is standard and short, which translates into a speedy offering process. Before the bond is listed an EEA prospectus must be prepared and approved by the Financial Supervisory Authority.

We offer one-stop shopping; once you have issued the bond, we will manage the remaining required steps including developing the necessary documentation and helping you convert into IFRS. We have a strong and extensive track record of assisting clients listing their bonds in Oslo and other market places in Europe.
