The Journey to the Public Markets

How Do You Take a Company Public?

There are more ways than ever for companies to access the capital markets. From traditional IPOs to direct listings to SPACs, companies that are considering going public must evaluate each option before determining the best path forward. Once the IPO format has been selected and regulatory documents filed, the company must then embark on an appropriate and timely external communications journey designed to educate potential shareholders.

In this webinar, our experts will discuss the decisions companies face when going public, including weighing the differences between the ways in which a company can become publicly traded and the steps companies need to take in order to communicate their choice before, during and after their initial public offering.

This webinar will include:

  • A discussion of the current IPO market trends
  • Options for going public – from direct listings to IPOs to SPACs – and how and why companies choose which one is best for their stakeholders
  • Best practice for communicating you IPO, based upon the IPO format selected
  • Metrics to gauge a successful public listing
