Direct Listing of Securities: Going Public Without An IPO

Date: May 23, 2018

Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Location: Webinar

Contact: Kelly Stella

John Partigan and Deborah McLean will present on the upcoming live webinar, “Direct Listing of Securities: Going Public Without an IPO” hosted by Strafford on Wednesday, May 23 from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EST.

Traditional methods of corporate finance have been disrupted in recent years, as more companies choose to remain private and no longer view an IPO as necessary for capital raising. The speakers will examine the registration and listing requirements associated with the direct listing of securities on a public exchange; and also discuss the recent amendment to the NYSE rules and the pros and cons of direct listings, including the recent Spotify filing (panel has no role in that transaction).

In addition, the speakers will discuss other challenging issues, including:

  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of undertaking a direct listing vs. an IPO, or no listing at all?
  • What are the SEC registration requirements for a direct listing, and what are the ongoing filing requirements?
  • How might the new listing rules adopted by the NYSE and approved by the SEC affect direct listings going forward?
  • What are the new valuation criteria for an NYSE listing?
