IPO diagnostic – a key service to prepare for an IPO

The diagnostic is a structured way of analysing and reporting on a company’s readiness to go public. It is essentially hiring an advisor to perform due diligence on yourself.

Key areas of the IPO diagnostic include:

  • Financial reporting procedures and internal controls
  • Corporate structure and tax considerations
  • Financial track record
  • Corporate governance and risk management

The output is a roadmap of what needs to be addressed during the IPO preparation process. The project does not take long: depending on the particular case, it can usually be implemented in about 3-6 weeks from start to finish.
