The most common way of going public is through an underwritten initial public offering called an IPO. The underwriter seeks subscriptions to purchase the company's stock. If the subscriptions are sufficient, the underwriting becomes "firm". The initial public offering (IPO) is then closed, the company is public, and the company receives the offering funds.
Though initial public offerings are perhaps the most sought-after form of financing, the fact is, surprisingly few companies can hope to successfully negotiate their way through the process. You must be doing 50 - 60 million in revenues to do an IPO. But we can assist small & even development stage companies go public.
Many promising small businesses cannot obtain funding because they are private. However, without funding, they can't hope to grow to the size and scale that would allow them to go public.
Why is being a private company difficult to the capital-formation process? Because many investors are reluctant to invest because they believe that even if the company does well, without an exit strategy, they may never see their principal or a return on their principal.
Investors want an exit strategy & we can help you to provide your investors with what they want.
