Offering shares on a stock exchange, or “Going Public” as it’s known, can be an exciting milestone in the journey for any Company. But it’s also fraught with risks – be it shareholder litigation due to failure or increased regulatory scrutiny – and as such requires adequate insurance consideration.
In our new interactive document, we explore some of these risks and summarise a number of key facts relating to insuring a floatation, such as:
- Risks to Directors, Officers, and the Company associated with an Initial Public Offering (IPO).
- Impact of an IPO on the coverage available under the current D&O policy.
- Insurance coverage options to address the risks specific to the IPO, together with the advantages and disadvantages associated with each approach.
- A suggested timeline and process to obtain insurance to address these risks.
- A number of claims examples.
