An IPO is when a company starts trading on a public exchange, offering investors a chance to get in on a hot new stock

December 7, 2020, Business Insider

Chris DeCresce spoke with Business Insider about the complexities for  companies who choose to go public. Mr. DeCresce says going public isn't all roses. It “does add another layer of complexity to the business.”

He adds, “Drafting the S-1 can put a lot of stress on the CFO and the accountants. It can also distract the management team from their traditional business responsibilities for months at a time.” Even after a successful IPO, "there are multiple SEC filing requirements that include annual, quarterly and other detailed reports,” he says. “Publicly held companies typically have to hire more people in their accounting and other departments, and pay more for employees who have regulatory experience.”
