Public Company Readiness
Conducting an objective and thorough IPO readiness assessment early in your decision-making process can uncover unknown issues both inside and outside the organization. Readiness requires an understanding of and insight into your strategy, governance and risk, financial, operational, legal, technological, people, change management, risk management and other areas to successfully develop and manage your going public journey.
The landscape for going public — particularly with the meteoric rise of SPACs as an option — is dynamic, evolving and volatile, with highs and lows driven by economic, global, political and regulatory disruptions.
Preparing to be a public company requires an entire organizational effort — an effort that is too often underestimated in its scope, scale and demands. Many start the journey only to quickly discover a critical lack of resources, infrastructure, expertise and time to go through the process and execute the work required to support the transaction properly. That uncertainty can put your opportunity at risk.
