The disadvantages of going public for Swiss SMEs are manifold. First of all, it is very expensive and time-consuming to go public. Many companies have to find investors and disclose a large part of their corporate data. Regulatory requirements are also high. In addition, publicly traded companies can easily fall victim to takeover bids from other companies. All this means that many Swiss SMEs prefer to opt for private equity.
What are the advantages of private equity?
Private equity is a good choice for Swiss SMEs because it allows them to remain independent while gaining access to funding and resources that would otherwise not be available. Investors bring not only capital to the company, but also their know-how and experience.
This can help SMEs to develop and better exploit their growth potential. For example, by investing in research and development as well as in the development of new business areas or the acquisition of other companies. This gives Swiss SMEs the opportunity to grow faster and become more successful.
