Service Highlights

Share Issuance

What happens when your company has reached a certain level of development and seeks new heights of growth through successful listing and capital raising on the stock exchange? That is when our Share Issuance Solutions can offer you its services.

Our Share Issuance Solutions has been managing IPOs and other types of capital raising exercises for many years. As the premier issuing services company, we offer a wealth of experience; a team of dedicated personnel and custom solutions to help ensure your capital raising exercises are truly successful ones.

We are one of only two licensed issuing houses in Malaysia, plays an important role as an intermediary between companies seeking capital expansion through initial public offers (IPO) and investors who subscribe to the securities of the issuers and works closely with regulatory authorities, corporate advisers and its sister companies under the Symphony Group to dispense innovative and investor-friendly issuance services specialised to suit your corporate and business requirements. We aim to deliver a total solution to ensure that your transition from private to public listed company is as smooth as possible.

If your company is seeking listing on any of the Bursa Malaysia Exchanges or undergoing a corporate exercise that requires capital restructuring for your company, then we are the people to call for your issuing services.

The path to listing is not an easy one – as you would know if your company has embarked on a public listing exercise – there are many prerequisites on a listing application and still many more post-conditions to fulfill and sustain after listing – its all part of the public listing experience of the Malaysian capital market. In the middle of it all, is the Initial Public Offer (IPO) event – the crux of the listing process. This is where we come into the picture to ensure the success of your listing project.

Complex Process

Organising an IPO is not an easy task. It involves synergistic teamwork from all parties to the process – that includes Symphony’s share issuance solutions and you.

Our work covers the breadth and depth of the IPO process – from IPO advisory, review of prospectus to balloting and issuing notifications to the IPO applicants, right up to your listing day event. We provide you with an experienced team and ready infrastructure to carry this out successfully.

By managing your IPO administrative process, we function as an extension of your professional corporate team to ensure that the IPO process is a credible and successful one.

Continuous Improvement

We continue to improve ourselves through process and technological innovation – a milestone in point is the time when we became the first issuing house to introduce Electronic Share Application for IPOs with participating banks and finance companies in 1999 and participated in the Internet Share application process with various securities and stock broking houses offering such services to their investing clients beginning 2003.
