Going public is a huge step for any company, and will probably be the most challenging and rewarding transaction your business ever undergoes.

The IPO process can take anywhere from one to two years, and can consume a large portion of your resources.

Cut your losses and ensure a smooth and successful transition from private to public by using a Multipartner Virtual Data Room to complete the process.

The researching, drafting and distribution of SEC registration statements, letters of intent, roadshow presentations and final prospectuses can be complex and time-consuming.

To ensure you get the most for your IPO, it is imperative that all documentation be kept organized and the process continuously moving.

In order for this to happen, all concerned parties – underwriters, investment bankers, lawyers, company executives, accountants -- need to be able to work together simultaneously and collaborate in real-time to minimize the time required for due diligence.

A Virtual Data Room allows all documentation to be stored in a secure repository online and be accessed by major players at any time of day, regardless of geographic location.

Other ways a Multipartner Virtual Data Room can help you get the most out of an IPO:

  • Exchange information critical to your deal, securely
  • Maintain a track record of all due diligence activity for compliance and regulatory purposes – archives available at your fingertips for rapid retrieval
  • Save time and lower your costs - spend time focusing on the deal instead of the paperwork
  • Access to imperative documents by more than one user at a time, allowing due diligence to be performed more quickly
  • Streamlines workflow and makes it more efficient
  • “Keep me updated” feature allows users to receive notifications on specific actions in the data room, such as when a document is added or when a user’s save or print permissions are modified
  • Remind me feature allows users to set up and receive email reminders of upcoming deadlines pertaining to certain files or folders beginning at the date of their choice
  • “Double view” allows files to be dually available in editable format when accessed by editors, and viewable only in PDF format (uneditable) by those with limited user rights.
