Embarking on the journey towards an Initial Public Offering (IPO) can seem like a daunting process for many company executives. Dynamic capital market conditions can further complicate the process and lead to an accelerated timeline for many prospective filers cutting short valuable preparation and strategy time. Often viewed as just a financial event, it’s important to realize the full scope of the transformational process of taking a company public by considering both financial and non-financial metrics, as well as, implementing initiatives early on to ensure a competitive advantage for a successful IPO.
