Going Public – The American Dream We Can
Help You Make It A
your company be the next Google? Even if not, it may
well capture the imagination of an underwriter. If it
does, one of the most significant events in your
company’s life, and yours, will unfold, with a life and
a timetable all its own. The stress of going public
has been compared to getting married, finding a job and
buying and selling a house, combined. There are endless
details to attend to, five distinct groups of
professionals to coordinate, two regulatory authorities
to satisfy, and an ever ticking clock, bringing your
financial statements one day closer to being stale,
every twenty-four hours.
public is a process: from the letter of intent to being
declared effective; from the comment letter to the
comfort letter; from the beauty contest to the road
show; from the first all-hands meeting to the closing,
from the drafting of the document to the editing of the
EDGAR proof, from the quiet filing to the Rule 424
prospectus, from the red herring to the green shoe.
IS ABSOLUTELY NO SUBSTITUTE FOR EXPERIENCE!
expertise and experience in these critical areas will be
invaluable: from consultation on the value of your
company to projecting your dilution after a repeat
offering; from help in choosing an underwriter to
avoiding poison-pill terms in the letter of intent; from
answering the SEC’s comment letter to satisfying the
lead underwriter’s counsel’s request for comfort; from
aid in drafting the prospectus as a marketing tool to
excluding material for which comfort cannot be given;
from getting started to getting you effective.
