Going public overseas: the Swiss market still wants information

Category: Investor relations

In 2011, cometris assist­ed with the world’s largest IPO of that year. Going pub­lic in Lon­don and Hong Kong amassed around 10 bil­lion dol­lars for Glen­core. At the same time, this secured the com­modi­ties group the largest IPO in the his­to­ry of the Lon­don Stock Exchange. What does that have to do with Switzerland?

Glen­core has been head­quar­tered in Switzer­land for decades; most of the employ­ees that work here are Swiss, and Glen­core is one of the biggest com­pa­nies in the coun­try. Before going pub­lic, Glen­core engaged in inten­sive dia­logue with the insti­tu­tions and indi­vid­u­als that were direct­ly involved with it as a pri­vate com­pa­ny. The floata­tion expand­ed the tar­get audi­ence for cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tions in one fell swoop.

cometris sup­port­ed Glen­core with plan­ning and imple­men­ta­tion dur­ing the IPO, and sub­se­quent­ly assist­ed with the increased pub­lic and polit­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions in Switzerland.
