Managing a successful IPO
Things to consider before going public
Deloitte’s IPO services are designed to help companies around the world navigate the IPO process. The critical period for many companies planning an IPO begins six to eighteen months prior to listing and lasts until the six months post-IPO. Deloitte specialists can provide advice and recommendations before, during, and after the IPO. Deloitte’s services range from the development of a personalized IPO readiness assessment, to PMO services, to technical accounting and SEC reporting services, to helping you navigate the IPO and operate as a public company.

On the surface, going public seems like a straightforward transaction. In reality, it’s a complex journey that requires planning, guidance, and a well-developed process.
