Are you looking to make the big leap? Going public is an exciting proposition, but with it comes some major pitfalls. The exposures you face on the path to going public are vast and complicated. Let our experts help pave the way for success and mitigate the dangers you face. The best way to mitigate your risk exposures is to have a comprehensive Directors & Officers Liability (D&O) policy.
Here are some ways we can help:
Current policy reviews
Before considering taking your company public, let our experts review your current policy to help make a smooth transition. Many private company Directors & Officers policies limit coverage during the path to IPO.
Prior to completing the initial registration form required by the SEC in anticipation of your IPO, it is important to understand the “Road” ahead. This is a crucial time to discuss strategy for your Directors & Officers Liability that addresses important coverage scenarios before, during, and after an offering.
This is a time to generate excitement and interest in the IPO!
But….Did you know? During your roadshow presentation, investors will rely heavily on the statements you make as well as the information included in your prospectus. The things you say and do can lead to claims post-IPO.
We did it, we’re PUBLIC!
While this will surely be a time to celebrate, it will also be a time of increased regulatory scrutiny and potential unhappy investors. A recent uptick in complaints being filed in both federal and state courts has increased both the severity and frequency of IPO claims.
