With the capital markets returning to more normalized levels, and discussions concerning the re-emergence of an IPO market, many foreign issuers (and their advisers) may be considering accessing the US capital markets.  Foreign issuers may be skittish about the costs of an IPO, the liability associated with a US IPO, the ongoing reporting, and corporate compliance and governance requirements associated with being a US public company.  Panelists will discuss alternatives to an IPO, including 144A/4(2) offerings, institutional debt private placements, Reg S offerings, and ADR programs.
Our expert faculty will also discuss the concerns associated with reverse mergers and SPACs.  They will focus on some of the advantages and disadvantages associated with a US IPO for a foreign private issuer and life after an IPO for a foreign private issuer, including regular reporting requirements, corporate governance considerations, and the changes effected by the SEC’s Foreign Issuer Reporting Enhancements (FIRE).
