“Since we’re currently seeing momentum in the IPO market, the timing to launch this comprehensive resource could not be better,” said Aamir Husain, IPO Readiness Services lead for KPMG. “As more companies plan on going public, the guide provides helpful insights around compliance, regulations and other key IPO-related considerations.”
Topics explored in the IPO guide include:
- Advantages of an IPO, versus potential issues and challenges
- Benefits of the JOBS act for publicly traded companies
- Clarity around accounting, financial reporting, regulatory, and governance standards that are required by the Securities and Exchange Commission
- Organizational change following an IPO
- The role of social media in Regulation Fair Disclosure
“The abundance of available capital combined with stabilizing economic conditions has contributed to the uptick in the number of companies filing for an IPO in recent months,” stated Dan Tiemann, Americas Transactions & Restructuring lead for KPMG. “We expect the strong pipeline of IPOs to continue into 2014, especially as we see broader market conditions continue to improve and U.S. companies take advantage of the IPO benefits under the JOBS Act.”
In addition to KPMG, other NYSE IPO Guide contributors include Cleary Gottlieb Steen &
Hamilton LLP, J.P. Morgan, Ipreo, FTI Consulting, Fenwick & West LLP, Marsh, Morrow & Co., LLC, and RR Donnelley.
A PDF version of the guide is available for download, as well as a tablet friendly version, on KPMG’s NYSE IPO Guide website.
