Being public is the endgame for many emerging companies, but it’s not an easy path. To assist companies, PR Newswire and Vintage Filings brought together industry experts to discuss different paths to becoming a public company, including a reverse merger.
A reverse merger is the acquisition of a public company by a private company, so that the private company can bypass the lengthy and complex Initial Public Offering. Going public through a reverse merger allows a privately held company to become publicly held at a lesser cost, with less stock dilution than through an IPO and is less susceptible to market conditions.
- Reverse mergers as an exit strategy to gain liquidity.
- Questions to be asked whether a reverse merger is right for their company and how to proceed if it might be something worth pursuing.
- A detailed look at the financial and legal sides of doing a reverse merger and what it means for investors, management and employees.
- Case studies of firms that have had success with doing a reverse mergers and important lessons learned.
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of structuring an acquisition as a reverse merger?
- What risks are associated with mergers and what should counsel consider when structuring the acquisition?
- Shareholder Communications and Investor Relations
- Barry Grossman, Partner at Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP
