Disadvantages of an IPO

  • Cost and Management time – it is expensive (in the case of Hong Kong think HK$25 million plus) and can take up to a year or more to go public
  • Capital and Business restructuring to comply with listing requirements.
  • Need to expand or modify management team
  • Need to have a Board, policies, controls and other cumbersome overheads
  • May not achieve advantages particularly on cost of capital or ability to borrow.
