Everybody likes the liquidity of investing in a public company. But not all companies are in a position to go public in the first place. Many CEO’s have no idea what the whole process entails and the responsibilities involved, not only in the going-public process, but even in the aftermath after their stock is listed on a major exchange. In this podcast, Small Cap Equity Advisors CEO Mike Brette discusses the pros and cons of going public, as well as what it REALLY takes to take your company public using Regulation A+ or the many other options available to issuers for accessing capital markets. Every CEO who is thinking of taking their company public needs to listen to this podcast!
Why do you want to go public? That’s the first question Mr. Brette asks his clients. The answer to that question is key because not every company is even in a position to go public to begin with. If you go public for the wrong reason, the result is toxic lending disaster. Going public is only one step – you have to be able to STAY public, and that is the crucial aspect that CEOs have to understand. What are the characteristics of an ideal business that wants to be successful throughout this process and have long-term profitability? What are the differences between going-public options available to issuers? Why is marketing so key? Take it from someone who has taken many companies public over his career, Mr. Brette has the answers every issuer needs to hear!
