Operating in the life sciences industry can bring a variety of challenges, not the least of which is raising capital. Going public is a transformative event, and also a complex, distracting and time-consuming transaction which presents high execution risk.
Research shows that the most successful public companies started acting like they were public long before the transaction.
How do you accomplish this?
- Simulate complying with Securities and Exchange Commission requirements
- Convene the board and report quarterly results
- Draft a press release that you send to your attorneys and the board for review
- Practice forecasting earnings and comparing your actual performance for a few quarters
