Going Public

Go Public Services, Reverse Merger, and Public Shell Alternative

Welcome To The Going Public Supersite

Empire Equity Group  can take a company public directly without a public shell company. However, for advisors such as CPA’s, attorneys or investment bankers, a new public shell can be built and customized. For consultants that may have future clients yearning to go public, having a public shell ready allows a private company to become a public company almost immediately.

We can create a new public shell for consultants. It will be formed and registered with the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) for the purpose of engaging in a merger with a yet to be named private business entity. These pristine public shells allow you to do reverse mergers with SEC reporting public companies that have never had an operating business in them.

We are happy to pay referral fees when appropriate.

We assist companies in going public on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange), American Stock Exchange (AMEX), NASDAQ (National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations), OTCBB (Over the Counter Bulletin Board) and the Pink Sheets.

There are no asset or revenue requirements to go public on the OTC Bulletin Board or the Pink Sheets; so, even a start-up can go public.

Going public without an underwritten offering has the following benefits:

  • Active market making, aided by a small amount of available public stock, can produce a strong and stable stock trading price for the public company’s stock.
  • The registration statement can also include securities of the insiders, corporate officers and other shareholders.
  • If the registration includes warrants, the public company can expect to receive proceeds from the exercise of those warrants when the trading price of the public company stock exceeds the exercise (strike) price of the warrants. This is another way for a public company to raise capital.
  • Typically only a small percentage of the private company’s shares are registered. This preserves the corporate ownership of the existing shareholders for raising capital is the future.
  • The company prepares the market for a later public offering, which typically occurs at a stock price greater than could have been done initially.
  • Preferred stock can be issued for various purposes by a public company.
  • Management and initial shareholders of the private company can have their stock in the registration statement. This can allow them to then sell their securities in the public market.
  • If it’s a foreign company, it may not want to become a U.S. company. The overseas company can have their securities traded in the U.S. on a U.S. stock exchange without requiring them to become a US corporation or subsidiary.
  • The market value of a public company is usually greater than a private company in the same industry.
  • It is usually much easier to raise capital for a public company because the stock has a market value & is tradable.
  • The public trading price of the stock of a public company serves as a benchmark for the offer price of a future public or private stock.
  • Acquisitions can be made with stock since publicly traded stock is viewed as currency for the purpose of mergers and acquisitions.
  • S-8 stock can be issued for employees by a public company.
  • If the offering also includes warrants, the new company can receive proceeds from the exercise of such warrants if the trading price of its common stock exceeds the exercise price of warrants. This is another way that a company that goes public can raise capital.
