A Successful London IPO for a VC Backed US Tech Company, Learn More at Palo Alto & Seattle Events on November 5 & 6

Join Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati at their Palo Alto office for the event: A Successful London IPO for a VC Backed US Tech Company.
 
The IPO of San Francisco founded, VC backed fintech Boku Inc. shows London offers a complementary liquidity option to US public markets for US growth companies in the $50m – $500m equity value range. The significant secondary element in the IPO and recent secondary selldown for VCs including Khosla Ventures, Benchmark Capital and Andreesen Horowitz demonstrate how London’s capital markets can be a pathway to exit for VC, PE and founder shareholders.
 
London has a high quality institutional investor base focused on small and micro cap companies, typically meaningfully lower transaction and ongoing costs for public companies and a strong track record in attracting international companies to list. Indeed, there are many other examples of US growth companies accessing London’s markets which will be discussed at the events.
 
Learn more directly from representatives of WSGR, Boku company management, London Stock Exchange, UK investment bank Peel Hunt, international law firm Taylor Wessing and global accountancy network Crowe about the benefits of executing an IPO in London and the key process steps to complete a transaction.
 
These series of events, hosted at WSGR offices in Palo Alto on November 5th and Seattle on November 6th, are aimed at venture capital representatives and senior management of both venture and non-venture backed companies in the technology and life sciences sectors.
