IPO Accounting Readiness & Execution

Going public is one of the most significant challenges a company can face. However, the most successful companies prepare rigorously and well in advance for life as a public company.  Riveron guides companies through the intricacies of going public and manages all aspects of the transition to ensure a successful public offering.

Riveron’s depth of capital markets experience enables our teams to establish and execute a comprehensive plan that fits a company’s desired timeline and optimal market timing. We blend our project management, technical accounting, operations, transaction, and communications expertise to accomplish the multi-faceted initiatives needed to successfully complete a public offering. From the initial planning stage through the IPO pricing and ongoing SEC requirements, Riveron will minimize turbulence and will allow management to execute the transaction within the desired timeline.

Equity Capital Markets Advisory

From deepening and broadening banker, research, and investor relationships, through syndicate build, public narrative and ‘street model’ construct, and unbiased and unconflicted advice on structure, price, size and allocation.  We get you ready, carry workstreams, and optimize execution.

Accounting & Finance Optimization

We help you design a sustainable analytical framework and then implement to provide timely, transparent, and accurate information for effective decision-making and successful business operations. From audit readiness, KPI and non-GAAP metrics, to SEC reporting, and establishing best-in-class FP&A.

Strategic Communications: IR and ESG

We help your existing team build a public program, prepare for and conduct mock earnings calls, develop sustainable messaging for external and internal communications, and help you deepen shareholder engagement well beyond your public offering.

Business Performance Improvement

Improve performance with solutions that drive revenue growth, cost management, and working capital optimization. Our expertise in process improvement and technology enablement delivers immediate impact and delivers improved long-term enterprise value.

Benefits of Riveron’s IPO Services

While achieving public company readiness may be your initial objective, Riveron’s mission is to bring deeper value to your transformation to a public company. To that end, we work to maximize the valuation of your public offering and, with your growth expectations in mind, we also create a roadmap for future scalability.

We ensure accurate, timely, and SEC compliant financial; that requisite organizational capabilities are in place; that governance and compliance mandates will be met successfully; and that a strategy has been formulated to enable scalability once public.
