The event is organised by MTI Corporate Finance, the recently launched subsidiary of MTI Consulting.

The IPO Model developed by MTI Corporate Finance, which forms the base for the event, covers the entire lifecycle of an Initial Public Offer. The process begins with the rational for listing, the pre-listing decisions and preparations, moving towards listing rules & promotional aspects, and ending with the post-listing compliances & long term performance of the company.

The model aims to highlight the fact that an IPO is an ongoing process, which needs to be ‘lived’ after the hype created by the subscription process is over.

The IPO Forum offers an opportunity for IPO hopefuls to gain the wealth of knowledge and experience gathered through the rush of successful IPOs that have taken place in the post war era.

MTI Corporate Finance is a recently launched subsidiary of Global Management Consultancy MTI Consulting. MTI Corporate Finance offers a full range of Corporate Finance Solution in the major domains of Corporate Funding & IPOs, Incorporations & Acquisitions, Asset Management, and Governance & Compliances.

MTI Consulting’s CEO Hilmy Cader, MTI Corporate Finance Business Lead Kapila Liyanage, MTI Associate Deshal Pandithage and MTI Associate Niroza Hussain will represent MTI Corporate Finance at the Forum.
