Watch the Anatomy of an IPO, a first ever look at the behind the scenes work involved in taking a company public:
Core Labs (CLB)
"When GTS took over from Barclays managing the stock of Core Laboratories, a $4.9 billion oil- and gas-services company, CEO David Demshur had never heard of the electronic trading firm. Soon GTS was winning him over, delivering data to his in-box at the beginning and end of each trading day, with richer and more customized information on his company’s stock than he’d been getting from Barclays, he says. These daily reports include details on where Core Labs’ stock is expected to trade throughout the day, who the biggest buyers and sellers are, and what’s causing volatility in its price. They also have forecasts for prices of various commodities. “We find that invaluable,” Demshur says. “Their experience in market-making we’ve found to be superior.”
– Dave Demshur, Chief Executive Officer of Core Laboratories (Bloomberg Markets, November 2016)
Minerals Technologies (MTX)
"GTS provides multiple open channels of communication on our company's stock movement as well as the overall conditions driving that the market."
– Rick Honey, Investor Relations of Minerals Technologies (MTX)
Grupo Supervielle (SUPV)
"GTS is proving to be a perfect partner. As for our first day of trading, GTS team knew how to come along with us relying on their state of the art platform, fluent coordination with underwriters –even prior to the opening- and strong technical (and emotional!) support with ourselves in our debut at the floor of NYSE. The information they report, and the communication we keep, every single day, is completely useful and let us track perfectly well our stock.”
– Alejandra Naughton, Chief Financial Officer of Grupo Supervielle (SUPV)
Apple Hospitality REIT
"The GTS team is incredibly responsive to any questions or concerns that we might have. As everyone knows trying to understand the market is impossible, but their proactive communication is extremely valuable in making us aware of what the day might bring.”
– Bryan Peery, VP, Investor Relations of Apple Hospitality REIT
"As an IRO I have found the team at GTS to be a great resource to help my team and our management understand what is happening in the market and the trading of our shares. The GTS team is very proactive providing market insight before the opening of the day and after the market closes as well. John, James and Ned are all very knowledgeable, professional, accessible and helpful."
– Paul Levi, Director of Investor Relations of SAIC (SAIC)
"I really appreciate the diligence with which the GTS team keeps me informed. Their insightful commentary on trading activity in the market and in our stock in particular gives me great perspective. Their response time when I have a question is fantastic and they are a pleasure to work with."
– Marty Connor, Chief Financial Officer of Toll Brothers (TOL)
Turning Point Brands
"A big part of the reason we listed on the NYSE was the structure with DMM's. We selected GTS because of their seasoned professionals and technology platform They are great at keeping us informed about our stock and are very responsive to questions."
– Mark Stegeman, Chief Financial Officer of Turning Point Brands
"When we were first considering an Initial Public Offering it was clear that we wanted to list with the New York Stock Exchange for a multitude of reasons but chief among them is the live person who is managing the really tough trades and pricing. In an age of electronic trades that equate to fractions of a cent, it is very comforting that Ned and the GTS team are standing watch to insure that the integrity of the open market pricing are intact. I have now worked with this team for three years and I can attest to their commitment to their customers and craft. I would highly recommend GTS and the NYSE."
– Dustin Bogue, Chief Executive Officer of UCP, Inc.
"Thanks so much for educating us, entertaining us, and tolerating our GDDY buzz all around your trading post today. We were all dazzled by the entire NYSE, the magic of capitalism in action and the trading language you all speak so fluently. Much more importantly, thanks for your careful stewardship of our stock’s introduction to the public market. We appreciate your partnership and look forward to visiting you on the floor again in the future."
– Marta Nichols, Investor Relations of GoDaddy
