Due to market structure and regulatory changes, the traditional capital-raising path for entrepreneurial companies has evolved. For companies in certain sectors, the firm commitment IPO may no longer be the goal. Successful direct listings have led many to consider this approach as an alternative. But is it an alternative appropriate for a broad array of companies, or best-suited to tech unicorns? Join our panelists from the NYSE, Morgan Stanley and Mayer Brown as they discuss:

  • The basics of a direct listing;
  • Legal requirements, timing, and costs compared to an IPO;
  • The marketing process, market-making and liquidity;
  • The stock exchange rules; and
  • Capital-raising in connection with a direct listing.
