Issues to consider when listing on the Wiener Bőrse

The market for initial public offerings (IPO) on the Stock Exchange in Vienna is an open one. Companies that want to go public need to take a few key aspects into consideration before submitting their first sale of stocks to the general public. Issues like company size and the business sector in which they activate are two of the most relevant components. The company’s background, its growth, and evolution as well as its potential are issues that can further increase a company’s success when making an initial public offering.
The capital market includes both stocks and bonds. Companies in Austria can choose to issue a bond as an alternative source of corporate finance. These have fixed interest rates and can very well be the first step for a potential initial public offering made by the same company.
