[Event] Surviving Your First IPO – April 23, New York, NY
Going public is a defining moment in the life of any company, so as an in-house counsel it’s important for you to know your role in making it a success. While typically a major stepping stone for a company and a welcome development for its management, going public is an intense legal undertaking that taxes the resources of even the most seasoned business and legal veterans.
This program will demystify the IPO process and leave you with an understanding of new challenges you’re likely to face on your way to counseling a public company.
You may know our speaker, Manatt Phelps partner Brian Korn, from his many television appearances on Fox Business News, Bloomberg, and CCTV America or his radio appearance on NPR about the impact of the JOBS Act on raising capital. Brian has been in-house at Citigroup and Barclays, specializing in IPOs and other forms or raising capital. He will be addressing some of the fundamental questions in-house lawyers have about public offerings, such as:
* Why go public?
* What is the process of completing an IPO?
* What is my role as in-house counsel?
* How are investment banks structured?
* How long does an IPO take and how much does it cost?
* What disclosures will I be required to make to the SEC and prospective investors?
* What opinions does in-house counsel typically provide?
* What is the process for selecting and listing on NYSE or Nasdaq?
* How will my board change and which Board committees are required?
* How do I deal with research analysts?
* What do I have to do once I am a public company?
Registration begins at 6:30 PM. The presentation will be given from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
A networking cocktail reception sponsored by Toppan Vite will follow the presentation!
