The speakers shared their experiences and knowledge with the participants regarding the benefits, processes, and challenges faced by private companies intending to utilize alternative funding in the Indonesian capital market through Initial Public Offering (IPO).
The event was attended by 41 representatives from companies currently served by Grant Thornton Indonesia. IDX hoped that the workshop could help Grant Thornton Indonesia’s clients obtain information about the aspects that need to be prepared in an IPO and serve as encouragement to list on IDX, becoming a diversification option for the investment portfolios of Indonesian capital market investors, which currently reached 12.03 million investors (as of December 1, 2023). IDX, along with all other stakeholders in the capital market, continues to provide support and facilities to companies in Indonesia to leverage funding in the capital market. As of December 4, 2023, IDX has successfully listed new shares from 78 companies, raising a total of IDR 53.9 trillion. This achievement is a source of pride for the Indonesian capital market because the number of listings has surpassed the previous annual record set in 1990 with 66 companies. IDX and all stakeholders in the capital market hope to continue assisting companies in Indonesia to grow together with the Indonesian capital market.
