Going Public


Cornerstone Strategic Partners know that whether companies are preparing to go public or carving out a business segment or division to monetize value, they need expertise and hands-on support they can count on to help ensure a successful transaction so they can remain focused on the daily operations and business execution.  The ever increasing complexity of corporate governance, financial statements, SEC disclosures, Sarbanes-Oxley, and information technology (IT) systems requirements make it essential that corporate and private equity clients have the resources they need to help ensure that their entrance to the public markets is successful.

Our Exit Planning and IPO Preparedness Advisory Services Include:

IPO Advisory

We typically advise companies going public to begin building an IPO preparedness plan at least six months prior to any contemplated IPO and establish corporate governance and compliance programs at least 18 months before filing the second SEC Form 10-K.  Cornerstone’s significant transaction expertise and financial accounting capabilities can help guide corporate and private equity clients through all stages of a company’s initial public offering and registration process.
