Private companies engaging in traditional Initial Public Offerings (IPO) or Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) transactions are presented with many challenges including SEC and PCAOB compliance requirements, compiling management discussion and analysis, and adjusting to public company accounting standards and reporting requirements.
In recent years both SPAC IPOs and SPAC mergers have provided a unique alternative to traditional IPOs for private companies to enter markets and access public equity. SPAC’s offer flexibility to traditional IPOs; however, the reporting, due diligence and compliance challenges are amplified, because SPACs expire if a deal is not consummated. An ideal SPAC target needs to be well prepared to comply with public company accounting and reporting requirements in a short amount of time.
