Agglomeration is ‘to form a cluster’. An agglomeration IPO is a methodology or model created to solve a number of problems entrepreneurs face in growing their business and adding value.
Entrepreneurs and business owners have big goals and ambitions when they start out on their journey but along the way they tend to hit some speed bumps. This is usually due to finances, how to grow, how to exit, or at times, just how to survive.
An Agglomeration IPO is a unique and innovative way of taking companies public on the stock market.
- Leverage a group balance sheet for winning bigger business
- Easy International growth
- Natural mastermind with key industry authorities
- Easy merger opportunities, should you wish to
- Dream advisory board
- Liquid net worth
- Hedged risk
There are no fees to take the company public
The cost for a normal IPO can be anywhere from hundreds of thousands of pounds to several million pounds
You keep 100% control of your business and the day to day running of it
You do not relinquish control unless you want to. You have a choice to continue running your business, on a day to day basis, with 100% of the control like you have now, or to exit and do something else. The choice is yours.
Focus on your business and not the admin of the IPO
The normal IPO route requires a lot of time and focus from you, or you have to hire people just to take care of all the work in preparation to go public. We have a whole team dedicated to taking care of all the legal work, due diligence and other requirements, so that you can focus on growing your business.
Listing in 3-6 months, not years
Many companies have spent outrageous amount of time and money to go public. The process takes a very long time, sometimes years. Depending on where we are in the process, it will take you 3-6 months to have your company listed.
Shareholder Value – I’m listed, so now what?
Getting listed is a big step, but after that you have to think about how to keep up with all the reporting requirements, but most importantly how to keep the stock price increasing and creating more value. This is our teams main focus, once you have gone live. We keep on acquiring profitable businesses and increasing the shareholder value, leaving you to work on what you are good at.
Agglomeration is not a traditional IPO. This model drives the bankers and finance guys crazy, because it democratises the IPO and gives the power to the founders. Interestingly, when the power is with the founders, the advisors are out of a job. This was born by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, to fulfil their potential, take back their lives and drive their own destiny.
The Agglomeration is a model created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, and seeks to create more options for business owners.
