IPO planning, assessment, readiness, execution, and post-IPO services

Deciding to go public is an exciting step in a company’s evolution. An IPO offers a unique opportunity to transform your business, but can also present tremendous challenges. Read on for valuable resources to help you navigate the complex IPO process. And when you’re ready to begin, Deloitte can act as the independent adviser you need to help get you through it.

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.

Steps toward IPO execution

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.
