IPOs in the Retail Industry are gaining momentum: What to know about preparing your company




Event Description 


Over the past few months, the retail industry has seen an uptick in IPO activity, including increased discussion on “who” will be next. Leadership of private retail & consumer companies may need to evaluate a potential timeline to considering an initial public offering (IPO) as a strategic option to accelerate growth or to address challenges created by current state of our sustained elevated interest rate environment. The roadmap to prepare for a future IPO requires proactive planning to position an organization for a total transformation. If your turn comes, will you be ready?


Join us for a discussion of current retail IPO trends, an overview of the key activities within an IPO readiness assessment, and a perspective on the most challenging aspects of the IPO process to consider.
