Preparing for an IPO
“When you operate as a private company you can make decisions and move forward pretty swiftly. When you decide to go public you will have to begin justifying those decisions and use process memos, internal memos and legal memos when it comes to classifying expenses to certain line items versus another line item. … My counsel is to spend the time upfront to get your ducks in a row. There will be bumps in the road and there will be hiccups. The sooner you learn you cannot control the IPO process and regulatory environment within which it exists, you’ll sleep better at night. Just be certain to asks the right questions along the way.”
