Initial public offerings

An IPO is exciting-sort of like running across a bed of hot coals. Plenty of details can trip you up before, during and after the process, from equity time bombs and oddball transactions to overambitious schedules and noncompliant records.

We can guide you through every step and make sure you don’t get burned. When you work with RoseRyan, you’ll know what the SEC is looking for. Your S-1 will sail through the comment period. And you’ll be prepared for the boatload of new obligations and workload ahead.

For overseas companies, we’ll provide a bridge from local practices to U.S. requirements. We can help with structuring your finance organization, evaluating service providers and identifying cultural challenges.

Think of us as a high-level extra set of hands that can work with CFOs, attorneys and underwriters-and take a lot off your plate. If an IPO’s in your future, call us in to:

  • Review your finances for issues that might affect an IPO
  • Organize resources and manage deadlines
  • Provide technical and reporting guidance
  • Prepare S-1 disclosures and supporting documentation
  • Navigate the SEC review process including comment letters
  • Support the comfort letter process
  • Begin SOX groundwork

RoseRyan provided valuable SEC reporting insights throughout our IPO. The consultant played a key role as an advisor in the collaborative efforts in the drafting process. As a result, we were able to keep to our filing schedule and received minimal SEC comments.
