In this series, leading market experts will provide an interactive discussion on IPO best practices and the challenges, opportunities and market trends facing companies considering and preparing for an IPO.
The first webinar in the series, entitled Is an IPO Right for You?, will be held on Aug. 30, 2012, from 2 pm. - 3 pm. EDT and will explore the following:
• Judging the current IPO landscape and considering how market conditions influence IPO success;
• Evaluating your options and the pros and cons of going public;
• Building your IPO business case and assessing how to ensure you’re both operationally and strategically ready for an IPO;
• Determining the merits of early preparation to position your company for IPO success.
Produced in partnership with Corporate Secretary, IR Magazine and Securities Docket, each webinar will focus on a specific stage of the IPO process — from appraising an IPO as an exit strategy to operating as a newly formed public company. All webinars will incorporate real-life case studies and address the impact of a different set of rules, regulations and financial market conditions.
