14 companies start Euronext Dublin’s IPO ready programme

Cubic Telecom, HealthBeacon, O'Brien Fine Foods, Camile Thai, NewsWhip and Business Post Media Group are among the 14 companies who started Euronext Dublin's IPO ready programme. The 10-month long programme for high-growth companies explores fundraising options up to and including an Initial Public Offering. Euronext said the programme aims to equip companies with a clear understanding of all sources of finance available to them and determine which is most suited to their needs. When finished, the companies' leaders will have the skillsets required to get their business investment ready. They will be able to refine their pitch for investors and also form a valuable network of peers, advisors and investors. Supported by Enterprise Ireland and the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF), the programme is in its third year. 12 high-growth, high-potential Irish companies graduated from last year's programme and these graduates - which included Atlantic Therapeutics, ATA Group, Finance Ireland and Devenish Nutrition - have raised over €400m in funding. Orla O'Gorman, Head of Listings at Euronext Dublin, said that previous graduates of the programme have benefited enormously from their participation. She said they had acquired the necessary skills to determine which funding option is the right one for their business and how to engage with the investment community. "This year is particularly exciting for us, as the ten participating technology companies are invited to join other scaling pan-European technology companies at Euronext's renowned TechShare programme," she added.
