"Regulators and investors demand that businesses be coordinated, transparent, and consistent when preparing for an IPO," said Jim McGeever, NetSuite COO. "It's critical for companies to understand how a strong financial management foundation not only helps support a successful IPO, but can help promote continued growth and institutional resiliency in the future, and how technology can support the needs of high growth companies preparing for and going through this milestone event."
Webinar attendees will learn how cloud ERP solutions have helped numerous high-tech companies lay the proper foundation for the rigors of the IPO process. In addition to sharing valuable lessons learned from taking multiple companies public, the executive panel will also discuss, in depth, these six keys that promote successful IPOs and help smooth operations as a public company:
- Improving Financial Systems, Processes and Controls
- Preparing for Rigorous Financial Reporting
- Upgrading the Finance Organization
- Establishing Good Corporate Governance
- Establishing Investor Relations and Communications
- Developing Risk Management Capabilities
Fast-growth private software companies with aspirations to succeed as a public company realize that point solutions and manual processes will not meet the rigors that an IPO entails.
