Our Equity Capital Markets advisors have decades of combined experience in corporate finance and securities law. We have acted on many stock exchange listings and capital raisings by public companies and we regularly act for leading local, national and international broking firms on underwriting, lead management and private placement arrangements.
We understand that advising on corporate, transactional and financing matters requires professionalism and commerciality but also flexibility and agility.
Our team have developed strong relationships with the ASX and ASIC. We have team members who have previously held senior positions at the ASX, the corporate securities regulator ASIC and stockbroking firms, bringing extensive legal advisory and internal working knowledge of the regulatory bodies.
Our core capabilities in Equity Capital Markets transactions include:
- due diligence;
- regulatory compliance;
- adviser and broker mandates;
- initial public offerings;
- stock exchange listings;
- project finance mergers;
- convertible notes and convertible loan arrangements;
- employee incentive schemes;
- underwriting and sub-underwriting agreements; and
- rights issues and entitlement offerings.
According to Business News’ 2020 Corporate Finance publication, Blackwall was one of only five legal firms that advised on multiple Western Australian IPOs in 2020, including the IPO and ASX-listing of Gindalbie spin-off Coda Minerals Limited.
We have also recently assisted with several substantial placements in ASX-listed companies and have recently advised on the listing via reverse-takeover of a number of businesses in particularly challenging regulatory environments, such as medicinal cannabis and internationally-registered technology businesses. Recent examples include Western Australian gold resource company PVW Resources and medical cannabis distribution business Health House Holdings.
