Equilar, Nasdaq and Cooley LLP are hosting a one-day program for executives and board members of new public companies, as well as companies planning to go public in the next 18 months.
Impending governance requirements and best practices often take a back seat during the IPO process, and the JOBS Act provides a few years of flexibility. However, as shareholder scrutiny on board decisions increases and proxy voting grows more complex, effective governance practices can be the deciding factor of success or failure from day 1 as a public company.
Boards must be prepared to operate in a very different environment and a new world of shareholder expectations and accountability.
The goal of the Fundamentals for New Public Companies event is to arm participants with valuable insights and actionable guidance to objectively evaluate their board structure, operational risk oversight, executive compensation and shareholder engagement practices.
