Going public always costs more than one would think, even someone who is involved in the industry and has taken many companies public over their careers. Recently we put together a cost estimate for one of our clients based upon a go public project last year. We normally say going public costs $250,000 and an on going annual cost of $250,000 for the clients we normally provide services for. What emerged was a cost of approximately $200,000 without any internal costs (which we normally include in the costs as well as recruiting costs for board members, executives, investor relations professionals, stock transfer agents, CPA’s, auditors, and others).
We provide the approximately breakdown here for reference only – please do not take these as non-volatile nor fixed in any way. Please do not use these outside of for discussion purposes only!
