The way to quick growth

The equity resources of German small and medium-sized enterprises are lower than the international average. A low equity ratio can limit business activities and therefore detract from a company’s economic development. One way of improving the equity base is to float a company on the market. This particularly applies to companies with strong growth or a reliable flow of income.

LBBW’s Equity Capital Markets (ECM) team provides personal and professional advice and support on all aspects of an IPO, tailored particularly to the needs of German small and medium-sized enterprises. As Germany’s largest regional bank, LBBW has been a member of over 220 underwriting syndicates. Its access to national and international institutional and private investors gives LBBW a strong placement network both in the German-speaking regions and the most important financial locations in Europe.

The ECM team can provide you with a comprehensive range of products for the primary and secondary markets.
