IPO, sell or stay the course - there comes a time when every company needs to evaluate its options. Should the business be sold? Should there be an outright sale? Sale of a minority interest? Leveraged ESOP? What is the right time to sell? How is the business to be valued? Should the company go for a last round of financing instead? Going public is often perceived as an enviable mark of great success. It is just one ingredient in a company's continued success, however. This forum will look at all the options available to companies, helping them find the one that gives them the sharpest edge in today's competitive environment.
