Clear, comprehensive account of the all the factors and processes that go into making a successful IPO, whether this be in Asia, the US or elsewhere, as written by someone who obviously knows this stuff inside out.
Am amazed that nobody has actually written this kind of book before- others tend to be very dry, academic in style whereas this is based on 'real world' empirical experience. Particularly good in pointing out the myths and realities of modern equity capital markets, and so is particularly useful for newbies in this field.
Essential reading for all corporates envisaging ipo'ing, financial sponsors considering IPO exits or younger bankers needing to get quickly up to speed on this topic.
In this comprehensive and thorough book, Mr Espinasse has distilled the IPO process into a practical guide that will help newcomers and experienced market practitioners alike. Other books dealing with this subject are either too academic or too general - "IPO: A Global Guide" hits the right balance between these two extremes and is a valuable resource - I would recommend it.
