Partner Gregory Sichenzia Quoted on Alternatives to IPOs and Follow-On Deals

February 5, 2016 Partner Greg Sichenzia was quoted in a Law360 article titled “Cold IPO Market Forces Companies To Get More Creative.” The article discussed that the weak market for initial public offerings and follow-on deals has companies scrambling for alternatives to meet their capital needs.  Viable options for them to choose from exist, albeit none as ideal as a robust public market.  Greg discussed the pros and cons of reverse mergers and Nasdaq’s and NYSE’s one-year “seasoning period” through which most companies must first trade over the counter while filing audited financial statements with the SEC.
