Equity Capital Markets

Thommessen has a leading position within equity capital markets transactions in Norway. We have over the last five years had a market share of more than 70% for IPOs on the Oslo Stock Exchange and Euronext Expand based on capital raised, and from 2008 to date we have acted in more than 50 IPOs on said markets.

The equity capital markets have become an increasingly important source of funding and is essential for economic growth – both nationally and internationally. As the importance of the equity capital markets continues to grow, so does the focus on trust and confidence in these markets. This has resulted in stricter and more detailed regulation of the equity capital markets. Further, equity capital markets transactions have become increasingly complex, with ever more international components being added.

Thommessen has one of Norway’s largest and most experienced teams advising on IPOs, equity issues, public takeovers and regulatory issues. We have both the capacity and the experience to assist with the largest and most complex cases, whilst at the same time handling a large volume of medium-sized and small equity transactions on an ongoing basis.

One of the clear leaders in Norwegian capital markets. Definitely a go-to firm in the Norwegian market. Maybe the best team available for Norwegian ECM/IPOs and they are strong in M&A as well. They have broad capabilities and high quality. Client
