A roadmap to initial public offerings

Preparing for an initial public offering (IPO) can be a complex, time-consuming, and often costly process. Accordingly, this roadmap addresses financial reporting, accounting, and auditing considerations to help companies navigate challenges related to preparing an IPO registration statement and ultimately going public.

As discussed throughout this roadmap, the SEC staff has made progress toward this goal, including through various initiatives. For instance, as part of its disclosure effectiveness initiative, the SEC has been exploring ways to make going public in the US markets more attractive while still protecting investors.

We hope you find this Roadmap useful as you prepare for your IPO. Should you have questions or concerns, please visit Deloitte’s IPO Center of Excellence or contact a Deloitte Partner listed in the contacts section of this publication.
