NPM Uses Its Legal Expertise And Experience With Secondary Trading To Set Up And Facilitate Auction-style Bidding Processes For Private Company Shareholders And Investors.

With companies staying private longer and dry powder continuing to remain at all-time high levels, we address the growing liquidity demands of the private market with a secondary auction format that provides competitive pricing and potentially allows company shareholders to be more involved in the transaction itself.

Why Nasdaq Private Market?

Multiple Opportunities. One Partner.

Customizable Auction Parameters

Auctions provide the same level of customization, if not higher, than standard private company tender offers. Companies can name price floors and ceilings, project or limit the amount eligible to be sold in the transaction, and more.

Competitive Price Discovery

Companies that run auctions may benefit from competitive price discovery from sophisticated, institutional buyers, which generally leads to more transparent clearing price calculations.

Time to Liquidity

Depending on the structure, companies may be able to carry out company-wide auctions in less time than it takes to hold a traditional tender offer, mainly due to the 20-business day mandatory tender offer window.
