Going Public Book Cover

For the original investor or corporate founder, few legal investments can beat the potential monetary reward of the leveraged selling of a company's stock. But the process of taking a company public is costly and complex, and any entrepreneur considering an initial public offering (IPO) or direct public offering (DPO) needs objective advice and information.

Going Public is the most comprehensive book available on the subject. Here are in depth examinations of advantages, disadvantages, costs, players and legal nuances that affect all IPOs and DPOs, regardless of their dollar amounts. Entrepreneurs will find everything they need to know about how to take a company public, including details on satisfying insider reporting requirements and NASDAQ listing requirements, timing the IPO/DPO with the needs of the marketplace and assessing potential risks and alternatives.

This third edition includes a new section devoted to conducting an Internet Direct Public Offering (DPO) as well as a new chapter chuck-full of IPO/DPO investor tips. For three editions, this book has been called The Bible on the subject of taking a company public.
