Is an IPO part of your company’s future? Even if an IPO is years away, there are actions you should be taking now to start preparing.
Join us on March 22 at our free IPO Readiness Forum for Controllers & CFOs at Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company in the SF Bay Area mid-peninsula to find out what you should be doing today to prepare for a future IPO.
Bring your questions — our panelists will be happy to answer them!
Anyone who’s been through an IPO can tell you that accounting practices, team composition and the finance infrastructure are vastly different for private and public companies. For a private company considering to go public, the CFO and Controller must deal with regulations, scale and new levels of complexity that will transform their FP&A teams and operations.
Topics will include:
- Lessons learned from Controllers who have successfully navigated the IPO process
- Controls, documentation, systems and personnel changes necessary to be audit ready
- What quarterly reporting requirements are necessary and tips on getting SOX compliant
- What auditors care about–and what they don’t
Don’t wait until the last minute, or you could end up with hefty consulting and audit fees to catch-up and/or correct work your team could have been doing all along.
The more Finance and Accounting leaders can lay the groundwork for going public in advance, the better prepared they will be to meet these challenges and plan for success as a public company.
Who Should Attend
Accounting and finance leaders are welcome! Content will be especially relevant to the following professionals:
- VPs of Finance
- Accounting Managers
- Senior Accountants

About Devil’s Canyon Brewery
From the brewery:
Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company was established in 2001 in Belmont, CA, the name derived from the original title given to the canyon which runs through Belmont and San Carlos, la Cañada del Diablo, by Spanish settlers in the 18th century. We pioneered the Bay Area craft beer movement in the beginning of the 21st century through innovation, sustainable production and a never-quit spirit. Back then, we produced only 1,500 barrels of beer a year and were the largest self-distributed brewery on the West Coast. What was true then is true now: people love flavorful beer!
