Baker Tilly session

Going public: IPOs, SPACs and direct listings, oh my!
What internal audit professionals need to know.

In 2021, IPOs surged in popularity to record levels. Although special purpose-acquisition companies (SPACs) are hardly new, the approach skyrocketed in the past two years, representing more transactions than traditional IPOs. In this session, we will explore how internal audit professionals can deliver significant value when companies go public via an IPO, SPAC or other direct listing method.

Learning objectives:

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Illustrate a high-level understanding of IPOs, SPACs and direct listings
  • Describe the advantages and disadvantages of the various listing methods
  • Identify what new risk and control requirements are required of public companies
  • Discuss the internal control reporting requirements and timelines that apply to newly public companies
