Growth and independence
Through a stock market listing, a company can obtain equity from a large number of shareholders and investors. The company can use this capital to finance further growth, start new projects or repay existing debts.
Liquidity
A stock exchange listing gives shareholders easier access to liquidity. They can buy or sell their shares on the stock market, which is a significant advantage compared to private companies where liquidity can be limited.
Brand value and reputation
A stock market listing increases the reputation and credibility of a company. It shows that the company reports regularly, which increases the trust relationship with investors, customers, suppliers and business partners.
Employee motivation and retention
Stock options and stock bonuses can be offered as part of employee compensation packages. This can help attract and retain talented employees as they can benefit from increased company value.
Benchmarking and comparability
A stock market listing enables investors and analysts to make the company comparable to others. This makes it easier to evaluate, understand how the company's value is created and view financial performance.
Access to further financing options
Listed companies often have easier access to debt capital because they are viewed as less risky or their shares are also used as a valuation benchmark. This can lead to more favorable loan conditions.
Exit strategy for founders and investors
A stock market listing provides an opportunity for founders and early investors to sell their stakes in the company and realize profits.
Increased awareness and customer loyalty
The public attention that comes with a stock market listing can help increase a company's awareness and attract new customers.
Growth Opportunities
The ability to use stocks as currency for mergers and acquisitions can provide additional growth opportunities for publicly traded companies.
Increase in company value
A stock exchange listing can enable a significant increase in company value. This means that unlisted companies (KGs or GmbHs) are valued exclusively using multiples. The stock market price, on the other hand, often includes additional growth and profit forecasts in the valuation as additional goodwill, which is reflected in higher multipliers. This higher rating can represent a significant increase in value if the multiplier increases by just 1 or 2 points.
