Risk Warning pre-IPO’s, IPO’s & Secondary Issues

Investments in pre-IPO’s and IPO’s involve a high degree of risk and are not suitable for all investors. A pre-IPO issue is the funding given to the company before listing. There is no guarantee that the company will list, but if it does then there is normally an increase from the pre-IPO to the IPO price, representing a profit. However, even when a company is listed on, say, the AIM market, it is considered to be a high-risk investment, and will have wider spreads on price and be more illiquid and it may be difficult to sell the shares on a short-term basis and in some circumstances it may be difficult to sell at any price. All investments made into an IPO or new issue or in a secondary issue should always be made solely on the basis of the information provided in the relevant prospectus and any other supplementary documentation. The specific risks will be detailed in the prospectus but the value of your investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back the money you invested. You should be sure that you fully understand the purpose of, and the reason for, the fundraising. Before you decide to invest you should obtain information regarding the business plan and note the risk factors. If you have any doubts about the suitability of an investment you should seek professional advice.
