MIND THE GAP
The holy grail for private companies is to go public with an IPO. However, whereas in 1999 it used to take 4 years to go from startup to IPO, now that is taking over 11 years - if it happens at all. SHAREbid is here to fill the gap, protect against stumbles and provide options to shareholders of private companies.
Company Age before IPO
Why Are Companies Staying Private?
Ease of Funds
Companies today find it much easier to obtain venture capital, so they no longer need to rely on the cash infusion from the sale of IPO shares. This is evidenced by the sharp rise in unicorn startups.
Expense of IPO
On average companies that go IPO incur an underwriting fee of 4-7% of gross proceeds, plus an additional $4.2 million of direct offering costs. Not to mention increased reporting and regulatory requirements.
Control of Company
An IPO allows for a potential takeover by another company through massive accumulation of shares radically changing the company culture, direction or leadership.
Privacy of Financials
Post IPO companies must publish quarterly earnings statements raising the concern that a bad quarter could trigger a sell off of shares.
