The Huffington Post spoke with Assurance Services Partner Kim Lamplough for their story on the challenges of taking a company public.

Taking a private company public is nothing short of building a new company on top of an existing company. In the same manner that the private company was built, through careful planning, persistence and the ability to adapt, the creation of the new public requires the same degree, if not more, of the same elements.
"Management should be sure that they already have appropriate skills and experience on their team, make strategic changes, or seek support from external consultants prior to beginning the process. Having a finance and accounting team that understands the requirements and challenges of going public will save time and money, both during the initial registration and on an ongoing basis thereafter."
