With the current state of the domestic and global financial markets, this may not be the most auspicious time “to go public,” but it undoubtedly can be the perfect time to learn and understand the process.

This process––of “going public” or, in laymen's terms, simply the sale and distribution of a new offering of securities––has traditionally been associated with the term “investment banking.” The association has a strong foundation, but through the years, this traditional view of investment banking has radically been transformed to include many other revenue-generating and support activities.  

This rigorous three-day module provides the participants with a broad view of today's investment banking while staying focused on its primary function, i.e., securities underwriting. Participants are given a guided tour of how security issues are packaged, registered, underwritten, issued, listed, purchased and sold in the secondary market. They are given detailed step-by-step illustration of how particular securities are offered to the public via private placements and initial public offerings (IPO). Various valuation techniques and pricing considerations are reviewed in relation to the topic/s being discussed. The role of venture capital and asset securitization in funds-raising will also be discussed. 


Successful completion of this module enables the participants to:

    1.    Identify and assess suitable IPO candidates;
    2.    Understand the advantages and disadvantages of
             public offerings;
    3.    Prepare SEC-required registration statements and other
             supporting documents, e.g., the prospectus, underwriting
             agreement, disclosure statements, historical as well as
             projected financial statements, etc.;
    4.    Offer strategy, valuation, pricing and timing advice to
              IPO candidates;
    5.    Appropriately coordinate public issues with accountants,
              lawyers and regulatory bodies; and
    6.    Manage security underwritings for their firms.

Who should attend

This module is highly recommended for investment bankers, business professionals and entrepreneurs, and other finance practitioners involved, one way or another, in structuring ways of tapping the financial markets as potential sources of capital. Those familiar with or have adequate working knowledge of company valuations, business acquisitions and basic business statistics, specifically, regression and variance analyses, standard deviation, etc., will find this module most meaningful and beneficial.
