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 communications, technology and life sciences companies than any other investment bank in Canada.
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.
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.
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.
