This PwC publication lays out a roadmap which explains successfully navigating a private company into, and then through, public life.
As improved IPO conditions emerge with the recovering economy, the number of private companies looking to access the equity markets is growing.

Insufficient preparation is not an option: A company must be ready to meet shareholder, regulatory, and market expectations from day one. Thinking through these realities well before setting an IPO in motion, and then devising a clear roadmap, is the key to successfully navigating a private company into, and then through, public life.
