Understanding the IPO process is an essential skill for both legal and business advisors. With the improvement in the markets, IPOs are happening with increasing frequency. In addition, last April Congress enacted IPO “on ramp” provisions in the JOBS Act that made becoming a public company even easier for “emerging growth companies,” which represent almost 90% of the IPO market. If you have not worked on an IPO recently, now is the time to refresh and hone your skills and learn about changes in market practice as a result of the JOBS Act.
