Join the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), Australian lead manager Ord Minnett and Baker McKenzie to learn why and how 46 U.S. companies have chosen to list and raise capital in Australia.
Australia has the world’s fourth largest pension market, with $2 trillion AUM, and a highly active stock market for growth companies. ASX ranks in the top 10 exchanges globally by market capitalization, capital raised and number of listed companies. An ASX listing offers more flexible access to funding, earlier liquidity, and a lower cost of capital versus Series B, later stage private rounds and U.S. public markets.
Technology and healthcare were the top performing ASX sectors over the past 12 months, and include multi-billion dollar leaders such as Xero (XRO), WiseTech Global (WTC) and ResMed (RMD).
In the last few months, ASX IPOs by U.S.-based tech companies include Minnesota-based fintech Sezzle Inc. (SZL.ASX) – lead managed by Ord Minnett (Case study) – which raised US$30m at U.S.$150m market cap (now capitalized at U.S.$300m), and San Francisco-based family networking app Life360 (360.ASX), which raised U.S.$103m at a U.S.$489m market cap.
Hear how the ASX may benefit your capital requirements, from an expert panel, comprising key members of the Australian capital markets ecosystem, followed by Q&A and a networking reception.
