details of floats 2003-2023


A company floats when it lists on the stock exchange and sells its shares to the public by way of a prospectus.


What is a prospectus?

Listing or “going public” means the company has to comply with the stock exchange’s listing rules when it floats and issue a prospectus. The prospectus is an invitation to the public to buy shares in the company and thus raise money for working capital or acquisitions. It explains in some detail what the company intends to do with the money it raises.

Floating a company on a stock exchange is costly and complex and many companies avoid it to some extent by merging with an existing entity that has failed. They thus gain “back door entry” to the exchange.


Should I invest in a new float?

Not so long ago a specialist website service monitored new company floats over a number of years and concluded investors would be better off avoiding new floats. We agree unless you are an experienced investor. Pacific Brands, Boart Longyear and Repco are examples of companies that were leveraged up and listed at high multiples, before subsequently collapsing.


Getting advice?

The “average” investor should be wary of investing in start up and small companies. Stock exchanges serve as a nursery for small companies, some of which prosper and grow, while many others fall by the wayside. If you are contemplating investing in a new company, we recommend you research it thoroughly first and obtain investment advice from a broker.
