IPO & Going Public

Planning and preparedness are critical to a successful IPO. We are experienced with the IPO process, registration statements, comfort letters and the details and nuances of going public.

Going public is one of a company’s most significant and complex transformations. We can address your questions and help develop an effective plan to meet your objectives. Our process includes:

  • Reviewing the advantages and disadvantages of operating as a public company
  • Evaluating other potentially attractive alternatives to an IPO
  • Assessing the ability of your accounting and tax processes, systems and controls to support the transformation to a public company
  • Sharing insights into appropriate corporate governance oversight
  • Long-term planning for ongoing monitoring and reporting compliance with public company rules and regulations
  • Setting a realistic timeline for the IPO process
  • Developing a compelling business plan
