Going Public

Benefits of Going Public

Why would a small or medium-sized business owner want to take her or his privately held company public and deal with all the rigmarole associated with public status? That is a good question.

Here are a few of the major benefits:

  • Going public gives your company more credibility and prestige with customers, clients, employees, the press and the financial community.
  • Being a public company provides the company founders with a long-term exit strategy.
  • Being a public company offers more liquidity for the founders and minority shareholders and investors.
  • Public companies can easily finance growth through equity capital rather than debt capital because:
    • The company stock can be used as currency for mergers and acquisitions;
    • Equity is available for an unlimited period of time and can be used without restrictions; and
    • Being public increases your company’s awareness and visibility vis-à-vis investors.
  • Being public makes it much easier to raise capital and reduces the need for expensive, and often controlling, venture capital financing.
  • Public companies are often valued much higher than their private counterparts.
  • Being public gives more options for raising capital; you can raise capital through both public and private offerings so you have the benefit of access to more sources of capital.
