The key to successful IPO strategies

An initial public offering (IPO) is an important event in the life of an organization as they seek to grow or provide liquidity to early investors and employees. But the path to an IPO is both complex and challenging. In the fifth edition of this report, we explore recent trends, regulations, market shifts that impact the IPO process, and outline strategies to help your organization prepare for going public.

IPO strategies for the changing business landscape

On the surface, the transformation from a private to a public company seems fairly straightforward. A company typically goes public when it sells securities to the general public for the first time. But exploring the opportunity to go public presents many challenges due to market volatility, increased regulations, expanded investor scrutiny of corporate governance, and heightened legislative influence.

In light of these challenges, it’s extremely important that any organization considering an IPO be well prepared. This fifth edition of Strategies for Going Public, created by Deloitte in collaboration with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP & Affiliates aims to help organizations effectively prepare for an IPO. It provides an overview of the IPO process, and detailed information regarding:

  • The advantages and disadvantages of going public
  • The new regulatory requirements for public entities
  • The procedures that organizations will need to plan for
  • Determining the right time to go public
  • The various stakeholders involved, and who can help you prepare
  • What happens after you go public
