Securities Law Breakfast Series: "Is Going Public in Your Future? Are You a Newly Public Company?"


Presented by Heyward Armstrong and Amanda Keister

This installation of the Securities Law Breakfast Series was offered in two parts. 

Part I
"Conducting an Initial Public Offering: Preparation and Process"
On September 12, 2017, Smith Anderson lawyers Heyward Armstrong and Amanda Keister welcomed a group of public company legal and financial decision-makers and advised to discuss one of the most significant and exciting events in the corporate life cycle: the IPO. Our Securities Law Breakfast Series has historically addressed topics impacting public reporting companies, but we are stepping back to look at the origins of public company life. IPOs are intense, complex and fun, and whether you have ever been a part of an IPO team or may be a part of an IPO team at some point down the road, we hope you will find this session interesting and informative.

"Life as a Newly Public Company: What the First Year Holds"
On September 26, 2017, the second part of the session continued and the presenters discussed how corporate life changes after that opening bell ceremony, including:

  • periodic and current reporting
  • expiration of IPO lock-ups and restricted stock issues;
  • governance transitions;
  • follow-on financings and secondary offerings; and
  • handling unexpected volatility.
