Undertaking an initial public offering can catapult your company to the next level – yet windows of opportunity open and close quickly. PwC can help you leverage the right insights to make the right moves – at the right times.
If you’re considering taking your company public, this monumental decision will truly transform the way you are currently doing business. While a public company faces greater public scrutiny and regulations, it also secures access to more, and often deeper, sources of capital. How do you get there? And how do you know if it’s the right path to capital for you?
Our dedicated team of professionals specializing in IPOs can advise you as you think through the additional requirements and continuing obligations in advance, and can develop an appropriate plan to help ensure you’re able to own success at every turn.
PwC’s clear framework for going public and being public builds on your organization’s strengths and looks beyond the complexity of the IPO itself to make certain that everyday execution moves in lockstep with the broader strategy.
Some say practice makes perfect–and we agree. Our capital markets experience across industries around the world has made finding and moving towards new sources of capital second nature to us–particularly for an IPO. We know from experience that companies need time to transform their practices internally and move the organization into a public company mindset.
If you are thinking about being public in the next 1-2 years, it’s time to get started.
It’s easy to underestimate the amount of time and capital required to bring your company up to public standards. PwC can guide you through a thorough assessment of where your company currently stands and then properly assess and identify gaps in your company’s preparedness.
PwC’s proprietary IPO Readiness Assessment uses a holistic framework that takes an in-depth look at your company and the sector in which you operate. We’ll identify your company’s position in the market, your equity strategy, potential issues in your going public process, as well as the potential challenges of operating as a public company.
