Taking a company public by way of an IPO is one of the most significant, difficult yet challenging and rewarding capital raising methods. It is a natural development for growing private companies, as a method of providing growth ‘risk’ capital outside the invested capital of the existing shareholders, and the benefits to the existing shareholders can be many and substantial. It is always difficult to navigate the rapidly changing financing environment in the marketplace, when a company is getting ready to go public. There are always many and various issues which include appropriate corporate structure; personnel organization; tax; audit; and corporate governance and related party issues, in particular, to address.
