A reverse merger (also known as a reverse takeover or reverse IPO) is a way for private companies to go public, typically through a simpler, shorter, and less expensive process. A conventional initial public offering (IPO) is more complicated and expensive, as private companies hire an investment bank to underwrite and issue shares of the soon-to-be public company. Aside from filing the regulatory paperwork – and helping authorities review the deal – the bank also helps to establish interest in the stock and provide advice on appropriate initial pricing. The traditional IPO necessarily combines the go-public process with the capital raising function. We will go over how a reverse merger separates these two functions, making it an attractive strategic option for managers and investors of private companies.
