The IPO Readiness Panel at the 28th Annual ROTH Conference Tuesday pulled no punches in laying out the daunting task of going public. Long recognized as a sign that a company has truly arrived on the scene, the panel Tuesday made it clear that going public for the wrong reasons was only going to create headaches. The process is a long, expensive, and trying one that should only be undertaken by those companies with a clear sense of why it's the best path for them to move forward.
The panel, which was moderated by Jack Hogoboom, a partner at Lowenstein Sandler, included a number of experts from throughout the industry, including John Weinhardt, CEO of Unique Fabricating Inc. (UFAB); David Bukzin, a Partner with Marcum LLP; Aaron Gurewitz, Head of Capital Markets at ROTH Capital Partners; Tom Runzo, CEO of Equisolve; Andy Hall, the Managing Director at NASDAQ; Steven M. Skolnick, a Partner with Lowenstein Sandler LLP; Jason Paltrowitz, an EVP with OTC Market Group (OTCM); and Steven R. Walker, the Managing Director of the National Association of Corporate Directors.
