SOS Educational Webcast: IPO Success Strategies
An IPO is one of the biggest events in equity. But there are so many areas where something could go wrong at a time of high visibility. However, with the right preparation, an IPO can be a seamless event for the company/employees and time for the equity department to demonstrate preparedness and professionalism.
Looking for tips on how to prepare? Join SOS’s Sorrell Johnson and Certent’s Michael Mauro to hear them discuss the strategies employed in successful IPOs and how you can use them to make your IPO a smashing success!

(One hour of Certified Equity Professional continuing education credit is available for attending. See the CEPI website for more information on CEP continuing education requirements.)

So Quotable:"Preparing for a successful IPO starts at least a year before the company starts trading publicly. Waiting until a couple of months prior to the IPO date will put you behind the curve. Make sure you aren’t caught out at this time when all eyes are on the equity department!" - Sorrell Johnson, CEP, Stock & Option Solutions, Inc.
