Taking a company public can provide significant benefits for the entrepreneur, management team and shareholders of the private company. Going public provides companies with stock and options plans to provide employee incentives, acquire assets or other businesses, increase shareholder liquidity and maximizes company valuation. All else being equal, a public company has more ways to capitalize on business opportunities. The disadvantages of being public are largely limited to the accounting and legal costs as well as the time it takes to remain current in regulatory filings. Taking a company public can be a life changing event and create significant wealth.
