IPO Process: Getting Ready to Go Public

  • 4 min read

It used to be that initial public offerings (IPOs) were reserved for high tech, healthcare and larger retail companies, but that is no longer the case. There are many sectors that now take advantage of this tool, so it pays to be more aware of some of the intricacies involved in the IPO process. Let's start by defining some relevant terms:

What is an IPO?

An IPO is the process of taking a private company and making it public. Essentially, when a private company participates in an IPO, they sell shares to the "general public" for the first time, and invite investment from outside their inner circle of employees and investors. The reality is that most of those initial shares issued by the company will be bought by institutional investors (r

What Is a Pass-Through Entity?

Pass-through entities are structured entities that offer business owners a more favorable tax rate while still protecting the owner or members from personal liability.

How Many Shares Does a Company Have?

How Many Shares Does a Company Have?

Typically a startup company has 10,000,000 authorized shares of Common Stock, but as the company grows, it may increase the total number of shares as it issues shares to investors and employees. The number also changes often, which makes it hard to get an exact count.

Shares, stocks, and equity are all the same thing. A share is one piece of ownership in a company. When you own shares, you are a shareholder. Owning shares in a company gives you the right to your part of the company's earnings and everything it owns. The more shares you own, the bigger the part of profits you're entitled to.

When a company starts up, owners must choose an amount of stocks to authorize. This is the total amount of stocks the company will issue to employees and investors. Not all

Poison Pill

Poison Pill: What Is It?

A poison pill is a defense tactic companies use to deter or prevent hostile takeovers. These "shareholders rights plans" often threaten to dilute the price of stock enough to give the target company time to find alternative bids. It creates a cost that the purchasing company will have to pay after they've taken over. It also dilutes the value of the acquiring company's stock, to make taking over less appealing.

One company tries to wage a hostile takeover of another company by buying a large percentage of those shares. The company being taken over is called the target. The company or wealthy individual trying to take over is often called a corporate raider. The term poison pill does not refer to the target company harming their own interests. Instead, they're harming the corporate raider's interests.

Typically, corporate raiders try to increase a company's stock price when they acquire the com
