The good reputation and standing of ASX-listed enterprises influences all aspects of their operations, from their ability to do business, to their cost of capital.
That's why, in an increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment for listed entities, HDY seeks to assist our ASX-listed (or listing) clients minimise their transactional and regulatory risk by drawing on our deep understanding of the Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules, and by working closely with both ASIC and ASX to ensure commercial certainty.
Our equity capital markets expertise, transactional experience and collaborative approach enables HDY to provide not only timely and commercially sensible advice, but to also anticipate and then suggest strategies in which possible areas of ASIC or ASX concern may be pre-emptively mitigated.
Our team is able to assist insurers and underwriters structure, document and implement all manner of capital market transactions including IPOs, entitlement offers, placements, securities purchase plans and secondary sales.
How can we help
Our team's transactional and equity capital markets expertise extends to:
- Advising on all legal, regulatory and procedural aspects of the ASX listing/IPO process

- Advising on all 'post-listing' legal and regulatory obligations (particularly those relating to corporate governance and continuous and periodic disclosure), and
- Assisting institutional investors, listed entities and underwriters/lead managers with the requisite transaction documents.
