Planning, executing and managing an IPO is a complex task for any organization and preparation for the journey is the secret to success. The better prepared a company is, the more efficient and less costly the process can be.
While the planning process for an IPO can start the day a company is incorporated or as late as months before a public offering, we recommend that an orderly plan be executed over a one to two-year period. If you are thinking about going public, it’s time to begin an IPO readiness assessment that can help guide your next steps. A thorough assessment can help you determine where your company stands and then identify and prioritize the gaps in public company preparedness.
Our illustrative IPO readiness timeline can help you understand your journey to going public. Simply select the quarter you would like to price your IPO.
A realistic expectation of costs can help improve budgeting, limit surprises and ensure alignment with management, boards and other stakeholders.
