Product Description

The new second edition of Initial Public Offerings: A Practical Guide to Going Public provides battle-tested, real-world advice on how to create a winning IPO. Packed with best practices, planning tips, checklists and sample documents to help implement its guidance, Initial Public Offerings gives you the actionable insight you need to:

  • Understand market requirements and lay the groundwork for an IPO
  • Weigh an IPO’s advantages, drawbacks, demands and alternatives
  • Prepare for the rigors of due diligence
  • Master accounting matters vital to the IPO process
  • Take advantage of pre-IPO tax and financial planning opportunities
  • Put together a powerful IPO team
  • Consider a “dual track” strategy

Numerous developments — originating from the SEC, Congress, and the private sector — continue to change the IPO landscape.

Completely revised and substantially expanded, the second edition addresses key changes in legal requirements and market practices of critical interest to IPO companies, lawyers, and market professionals alike. Among other new and updated topics, the book covers the impact of the JOBS Act on private company fundraising, pre-IPO activities, Form S-1 disclosure requirements, and the IPO process; ongoing changes in corporate governance requirements and practices; and important developments in accounting preparation, SEC review, and underwriting practices. The new edition also includes updated market data, IPO forms, and planning tips to help ensure a smooth IPO in the post-Dodd-Frank, post-JOBS Act world.

Updated at least once a year and hailed by executives, entrepreneurs, general counsel, investment bankers and venture capitalists alike as the definitive IPO guide, Initial Public Offerings is an essential resource for anyone planning to go public. Here’s what market leaders are saying about this book:

“There is no better practical tool for anyone needing an in-depth, step-by-step guide to the IPO process. Anyone embarking on the IPO road will benefit from the book’s insights on dealing with the SEC, and from its practical advice on every business and corporate governance issue that must be addressed in taking an enterprise public.” 
 —Larry Sonsini, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati

“If you need one book on the public offering process, this is it. This masterful work explains the financial, governance and legal realities of the IPO process from a perspective valuable to entrepreneurs, first-time issuers, young attorneys, and grizzled veterans alike.” 
 —Joseph A. Grundfest, William A. Franke Professor of Law and Business and Co-Director, Rock Center on Corporate Governance, Stanford Law School
