Guide to Direct Listings: Benefits, Challenges, Mechanics and More

Guide to Direct ListingsThis year, alternatives to a traditional IPO have become increasingly common. One of those alternatives, a direct listing, enables private companies to list their shares on a public stock exchange without a traditionally underwritten offering.

Direct listings offer many benefits, but they also present some unique challenges. In this resource, “Guide to Direct Listings: Benefits, Challenges, Mechanics and More,” we share an in-depth overview of the mechanics behind a direct listing, along with case studies detailing approaches recently taken by companies that have pursued the transaction and the market’s reception.

The guide also explores:
