Your Partner in Public Company Readiness Preparation
Going public is a landmark event for any organization, whether that be in the form of an Initial Public Offering (IPO) or Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC). With all the excitement and attention that accompanies this stage, it can be easy to underestimate the heightened compliance and regulatory burdens that are placed on public companies.
While going public through an IPO offers a somewhat extended timeframe to move through the public company readiness process, SPACs have the ability to add an increased level of complexity due to an accelerated timeline. The Clearview team will work with your company before and after an IPO or SPAC to understand your people, processes and systems and ensure that you have the technical accounting support available to satisfy your auditors; that your SOX program and systems are both technically and administratively compliant to meet the standards required by the SEC; and that with an influx of capital, you have established the appropriate processes, governance structure and internal control plan to comply with SOX requirements.
We’ll work side-by-side with your organization and coordinate efforts with your external auditor to scale the people, processes and systems that a post-public company will need to be successful, compliant and poised for future growth.
