In good markets or bad, reverse mergers play a key role for companies that want to avoid the IPO route for going public. Since the successful first edition of Reverse Mergers was published in 2006, the economic and regulatory landscape has changed. Executives, owners, lawyers, accountants, professional investors, regulators, and others need to know what those changes mean for reverse mergers. Reverse-merger expert David Feldman gives an overview of the most important changes since the previous edition was published: new SEC regulations, the changing nature of SPACs (Special-Purpose Acquisition Company), and the emergence of new instruments called WRASPs (WestPark Alternative Senior Exchange Process). The book includes a new chapter on China, and the “Experts Speak” chapter features all new interviewees. David Feldman is one of the country’s leading experts on reverse mergers, self-filings, and other alternatives to IPOs.

In a public company, accountants are buried with additional reporting requirements, though there is a clear opportunity to raise money through the public markets. In Public Company Accounting and Finance, we explore both of these aspects of a public company. The accountant must learn about earnings per share, segment reporting, and Staff Accounting Bulletins, as well as quarterly and annual reporting to the SEC. Meanwhile, the treasurer can engage in an initial public offering, file registration statements, or sell shares under various SEC exemptions. This book covers all of these topics and more.

Taking a company public is every entrepreneur's dream, and it alsooffers major financial rewards, prestige and glamour. It is also acomplex process that often intimidates entrepreneurs, and requires specialists in many disciplines such as accountants, attorneys, consultants and public relations executives. These professionals may possess a thorough knowledge of their area of expertise, but they rarely have a total grasp of the entire process of taking a company public. This book fulfills the need of the Chief Executive Officer and the IPO team to obtaina more complete understanding of this complex subject.

Recent traumatic events in the financial markets, such as the fall of Enron, World Com, and Arthur Andersen, have led to an increased emphasis on corporate governance and on the regulatory bodies overseeing the capital markets and the financial professions. However, educational materials that appropriately highlight the importance of the SEC, as well as the new laws that apply to corporate reporting, ethics, and guidelines for corporate governance, are scarce. Few titles exist that can serve as either a supplement or as a primary text that focus on the SEC as the body for overseeing financial reporting and corporate responsibilities. An Introduction to Corporate Governance and the SEC by Skousen, Glover, and Prawitt fills that role. Use this book as either a supplement or as a primary text to help your students understand the fundamentals of corporate governance and the critical role the SEC plays in the corporate governance process, overseeing the financial reporting of public companies.

Praise for International and U.S. IPO Planning "Perhaps the greatest value of Frederick Lipman's new book on initial public offerings derives—as its title indicates—from the emphasis that it places on planning. Lipman makes abundantly clear that an IPO is not something to be rushed into by every fledgling firm, as was typical during the boom of the late 1990s. Indeed, his extensive treatment of the many aspects of preparing a company for an IPO, particularly the non financial aspects, helps the reader to focus on the most important question of all: Is an IPO appropriate for a given company? Somewhat uniquely, Lipman then asks the further question of whether an international IPO might be appropriate for that company even if a domestic one were not. By doing so, he has made a real contribution to this literature." —Kenneth C. Froewiss, Clinical Professor of Finance, NYU Stern School of Business "We are operating in a global environment in nearly every aspect of business, and structuring/planning for an IPO is no different. The recent changes in regulations for U.S.- listed companies have raised the cost of access of U.S.-listed IPO capital, making foreign exchanges much more attractive. Fred Lipman has created a wonderful guide for managers to seriously access this option for their business. I also hope his book is a wake-up call to U.S. regulators on their impact on the competitiveness of U.S. securities markets." —Bob Hellman, Managing Partner & CEO, American Infrastructure MLP Funds "This book will be of immense value to the companies planning an IPO. I am particularly struck by the research done by the author, which, in my opinion, makes it an authentic guide for private companies not only in the U.S. but also in Asia, particularly India and China, where a huge opportunity awaits companies to mature into sustainable enterprises by involving a large section of society in their IPO." —M.K. Chouhan, Chairman, Mahendra & Young Knowledge Foundation, and Vice Chairman of Global Advisory Board, Asian Centre for Corporate Governance "This book contains valuable suggestions for advanced planning for both U.S. and international IPOs and belongs in the library of every entrepreneur and business executive." —William C. Tyson, Associate Professor, Legal Studies, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania 8 crucial steps to planning a successful IPO International and U.S. IPO Planning outlines the eight step-by-step techniques all private companies must follow to prepare for a successful IPO, either in the U.S. or internationally. From advance planning techniques for both an international and U.S. IPO, to growing a business through acquisitions and "roll-ups" prior to an IPO, to deterring unwanted suitors by inserting carefully placed provisions into the charter, and so much more, International and U.S. IPO Planning provides a wealth of practical and insightful guidance to help the private company go public, regardless of its size or location.
