Go Public With RBC Dominion Securities

When you're ready to gain access to capital markets we can connect you with RBC Dominion Securities (RBC-DS), Canada's leading full service investment dealer. RBC-DS offers expert investment banking services for initial public offerings (IPOs).

About RBC-DS: The IPO Leader

Since the formation of our Knowledge Industries Group in 1993, RBC Dominion Securities has led more financings, raised more capital and advised on more strategic transactions for telecommunications and media companies than any other investment bank in Canada.

Recent transactions range from raising private equity for some of Canada's most promising growth companies to leading Canada's largest technology IPO and arranging some of the most significant telecommunications mergers in Canadian history. These accomplishments underscore the depth of our commitment and the effectiveness of our approach.

Private Placement

If you're not sure whether the timing for an IPO is right, RBC-DS can advise you and suggest alternatives, such as a private placement. RBC-DS has extensive experience with private placements for knowledge-based clients, helping them raise expansion capital and gain an all important credibility edge before they launch IPOs.

Follow-on Offerings

After your company is public, RBC-DS can continue to help you tap capital markets through innovative follow-on offerings such as convertible debentures, preferred shares, high-yield debt, structured derivative transactions or additional common equity issues.

Leading Market Maker

The equity sales and trading professionals at RBC-DS have been ranked as the No.1 team in Canada by the Brendan Wood Survey, largely because of the value they add for institutional investors with timely, in-depth corporate and industry research reports.

RBC-DS' trading professionals are in constant contact with a select group of institutional investors who are interested in small and mid-cap companies. Such strong relationships with buyers and sellers enable RBC-DS to develop markets in its areas of investment focus.

Mergers & Acquisitions

RBC-DS is also the pre-eminent Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) firm in Canada, with the largest group of dedicated M&A professionals in the business. Working with the RBC Royal Bank Financial Group's corporate finance specialists, the M&A team has completed acquisition and divestiture assignments ranging from small to very large.
