Meet the Practice Leader
Readying Private Companies for the Public Environment
The operational, technical, and regulatory requirements for taking a company public are numerous and complex. For CFOs of privately-held companies, for whom exit is always top-of-mind, preparing to become and function as a public company requires the support and guidance of experts who have been down the path before.
Accordion’s IPO Readiness Practice works hand-in-hand with private company CFOs, and Private Equity Sponsors providing the strategic counsel, financial modeling, and tactical execution to ensure effective public market entry and ongoing success.
Comprised of experts experienced in working both sides of IPO/SPAC transactions, we lead all aspects of planning and deliver hands-on execution to ensure CFOs are prepared to lead their organization into the public environment. Working across operational and technical accounting, financial planning and analysis, technology and project management, we leverage our expertise to implement the enhanced strategic, operational and technical accounting processes and controls that meet regulatory requirements while driving best-in-class business insights and value for continued post-transaction prosperity.
Private equity firms need to be strategic and flexible when exiting a portfolio company during a downturn/recession cycle with high-interest rates. They need to carefully consider their options, assess market conditions and company financials, and be prepared to adapt their exist strategy as needed. No matter the path – sale, traditional IPO or SPAC merger – exit readiness is no small feat.”
