Just wondering what wonderful things UI has for November articles. Iím also here to rub it in to Jesse that I never do crap for this site. But if you donít have anything, I can discuss my opinions on various topics involving how funny Conan OíBrian is.

But Jon will. He volunteered. wink

Taking Your Company Public: Reverse Merger or S1 Filing &requo; Submit Content Online | Free Article Directory | Add Articles Tweet
The dream of taking oneís company public is all too often unrealized when a shell merger or reverse merger concept is used. I say concept because this describes a general tactic as opposed to a strategy personified by a direct registration or S1 filing. Shortcuts have no place in a public offering as it lacks the results sought by entrepreneurs and demanded by investors and shareholders. Shells for mergers are typically dogs infested with microscopic flees Bob Lilly Jersey , the struggle for volume and investor retention is constant and youíll never have the full legitimacy of an S1 as the previous owners organizational baggage will constantly hinder your development as a public entity as the weight of skeletons in the closet will always outweigh your efforts, thus eliminating the results of IR and other promotional tactics for stock traction in the marketplace. Going public doesnít have to be painful, all you need is a game plan and experienced agents working on your behalf. If youíre broke get a loan, donít attempt a public offering. If your company has a proven concept and solid net revenues then going public may be just the fund-raising tool youíve been looking for.

Youíll need several things in order to go public properly; the least of these is: an S1 attorney, market maker, investor relations strategistfacilitator Robert Newhouse Jersey , solid board of directors, professional and well pedigreed CEO and CFO (or proven controller) and ongoing consultants for mergers and acquisition identification, research and facilitation (donít think you can grow your public entity organically).

Sure a legitimate public offering via S1 takes a little longer but itís required for a viable and prosperous public lifespan. The difference between going public via S1 and Shell Merger is as blatant as marrying the prom queen and marrying a corpse sure a shell has skin and bones but wouldnít it be great to have a pulse? Donít sell yourself short. Go public the right way!

Next, How do you decide whether your company is better off doing a reverse merger or a direct S1 filing when going public?

If youíre interested in going public youíve obviously been bombarded with the realities of shell mergers, reverse mergers, pink sheets Larry Allen Jersey , OTCBB, London Exchange and other so called options that will no doubt confuse your efforts. Wolves in sheepís clothing and roses with contaminated thorns run rampant in this industry. People are typically the opposite of what they seem and the options they put up for your consideration more often than not have downsides that wonít be realized until the transaction is consummated with the obligatory retainer compensation wire.

Here are the facts: reverse mergers rarely work, Pink Sheet companies typically fail, the Frankfurt Exchange is a glorified cesspool, the London Exchange is as effective as eating 20 bun cakes in one sitting while on a low carb diet and the S1 filing is the only true way of going public for a company under $50m in annual revenues.

Shortcut oriented consultants and organizations insist on reverse mergers into public shells. Iím not judging companies or strategists that have used this method, Iím guilty of using shells in the past when I have a client that insists on this particular process but I always lay out the proís and conís that come with a shell.
