IPO's and Initial Public Offerings
We are the leader in taking small private companies public. You don't have to be a large company to do an IPO (Initial Public Offering) or to go public. We will guide through the IPO process.
The CEO of our company is an attorney with many years of experience dealing with IPO's and also taking company's
public without an IPO. We are IPO Consultants and we take companies public. We will be your IPO consultant through
the entire initial public offering procedure. Our guidance through the regulations of the IPO procedures is invaluable.
We can also assist you in going public if you do not qualify for an IPO or Initial Public Offering. You can take a company public without raising capital. There is no time in business, revenue or earnings requirements. This means even a brand new company can go public. There are many reasons to go public other than raising capital.
Why Go Public With Your Company
Some companies want to go public to have an exit strategy for investors, some hope to receive the greater
valuation a public company will usually get. They can use stock to grow through acquisition. Also venture
capital money and private equity is usually very expensive capital as opposed to capital you raise when
going public. This is because a public company usually gets a higher valuation than the same private company.
Therefore by going public you will probably give up a smaller percentage of your company stock, for the
capital that you may raise, than the same private company.
You do not need to do the traditional first sale of stock to general investors with a prospectus and underwriter. A syndicate of investment bankers usually float a company by best efforts or firm commitment. But you can become a publicly traded company without an underwriter. A private company or issuer does not need an investment banking firm to take it to public trading status.
In other words even a start up company can become a public traded corporation. We act as counsel for private companies or can negotiate and introduce you to investment banking syndicates or we can take you public directly without the need for investment banking firms.
How does a company do an IPO ?
In an initial public offering you must have a securities attorney file an S-1 Registration Statement
with the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission). You will also typically have a FINRA member broker
dealer and market maker involved in your company's initial public offering.
These broker dealers and market makers professionals will then help you accomplish these two goals:
(1) they will raise capital for your business
(2) They will take you through the initial public offerings process in order to become a publicly traded company.
This is a traditional initial public offering which is unlike an IPO dutch auction. You don't necessarily need to do an initial public offering to go public. Many companies go public for reasons other than raising money.
Executing the IPO process which is often referred to as the "how to ipo" is a complex procedure. Therefore you want to have a good IPO advisory firm that will act as IPO advisors on behalf of your firm. We do have a report available discussing the advantages and disadvantages of an IPO. Initial Public Offeringsare not the only way for a business to go public. A company can go public without an underwriter or do a reverse merger with a public shell company. Initial public offerings are when you do 2 things simultaneously: raising capital and going public. We have reports that we can send to you dealing with subjects such as: what is an IPO, how does an IPO work and all about our IPO consulting services. We will also be developing an IPO calendar that will be about IPO stocks, IPO news and general IPO information.
When a corporation does an Initial Public Offering the company and its founders may enjoy many advantages and benefits.
The list of benefits may include these items (but there is no guarantee that it will).
Generating capital without expensive debt.
A businesses ability to raise additional money is improved after becoming a public company. Because after the sale of securities it usually increases the net worth of a business & decreases the ratio of equity to debt which can make it easier to borrow and on better terms prior to going public.
x The shareholders may receive liquidity for their shares of stock.
Businesses can use stock to acquire things, to barter, and to attract employees.
When you go public with a company or do an IPO this can attract the attention of the media as well as the general public. This can generate interest in your company's stock as well as your product and services.
Initial Public Offerings: Advantages and Disadvantages
We will cover the pros and cons of ipos. The biggest disadvantage of IPO's is that there is
typically a lot of paperwork. You have to file quarterly reports with the SEC Securities and
Exchange Commission. The other is that Pre IPO costs as well as the actual expense should
be a serious consideration. Even for start up companies or a small business it can cost
up to $100,000 to go public.
The company will want an experienced securities attorney since they will have to do certain SEC filings. The IPO filings would be a registration statement with the SEC and periodically the public company would have to file Form 10-K, Form 8K or 8-K and Form 10-Q. These filings are part of the 1934 Exchange Act.
