IncSmart New York (Small Business and Startups)
- Are you ready to take your company public? Is your company growing and in need of capital to finance its growth? You have worked hard to make your company a respected leader by consumers, competitors and business analysts. Companies can fund growth through either bank loans or issuing stock.
The steps to take your company public, are listed below. You are now ready for public capital. To list your company on a stock exchange, you must follow the regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and be approved after an initial public offering, IPO.
1 - Hire an business attorney who specializes in IPOs.
2 - File a registration statement with the SEC, notifying the agency of your intent to go public.
3 - Write a preliminary prospectus that details the company history
4 - Hire investment banker or brokerage company to sell your stocks and set the IPO price.
5 - Market the IPO with potential investors
Another benefit of listing on a stock exchange for growth capital, is the ability to share revenue with employees by stock or stock options. A publicly traded company can give employees part of their pay in stock options, the best incentive for employee creativity and loyalty.
