WHAT IT IS
An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is a bumpy road to take; however, when done properly, it takes your company to new heights of success.
Going public is a life-changing decision: the process is complex and the journey is incredibly turbulent. Therefore, your company should be well-prepared to meet this transformational objective.
HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR BUSINESS
An IPO is a great means of reflecting a more positive image and making more capital. And with the extra cash derived from the sale of stock, your business may grow drastically. The raised capital can be used to invest and invent; hire more qualified staff; offer additional compensations to stakeholders, partners, investors, and employees; develop new products and services; renovate your already existing plant; go bigger; or branch out. Whatever you do can eventuate in a better outcome.
Moreover, being present on a major stock exchange can be more appealing to customers. In addition, a publicly-traded company may have more leverage in negotiating with vendors, thus improving profit margins by saving on vendor costs. Put simply, an IPO could be the road to riches for you, your company, and everyone involved.
