For most private businesses, an IPO will be a completely new experience. As any leader of a recently listed public business will tell you, the success of an IPO lies in the planning and preparation.
This is why EY has developed the IPO Retreats, an intensive, offsite education program, held in major markets around the world. The retreats have been specifically designed for entrepreneurs and business leaders who plan to take their company to the public markets.
At the retreat, participants have the opportunity to listen to professional advisors and senior executives of newly listed companies share their experiences, and learn what it takes to deliver a successful listing. Through the process, participants will not only have a clear understanding of the pros and cons of an IPO, but will also receive assistance to emerge with a clear action plan for becoming a public company.
