Capital Markets

A vibrant capital markets sector and a well-run regulator have seen a number of Kenyan companies turn to capital markets as an alternative source of capital.

Walker Kontos has acted as legal adviser in a significant number of listed and unlisted note and bond programmes in Kenya as well as public rights issues for Kenyan companies.

Notable clients are:

Kenya Commercial Bank Limited, CfC Stanbic Bank Limited, Housing Finance Company of Kenya Limited, Mabati Rolling Mills Limited, Faulu Kenya Limited, Athi River Mining Limited, I&M Bank Limited, TPS Kenya Limited, Equity Bank Limited and Fina Bank Limited.

Our work in most transactions is noteworthy for being the first of its kind in relation to offerings made in Tanzania and Uganda, followed by cross-listings on the Dar-es-Salaam and Uganda Stock Exchanges; the first in relation to new listing and disclosure requirements promulgated by the Capital Markets Authority; or the first in relation to a listing by way of introduciton. These requirements have necessitated an innovative approach and the need to think outside the box, reasons for which Walker Kontos is one of the main go-to firms for work of this nature.
