How IPOs work Public vs Private Effects on early investors Process

Public vs Private Going Public ! Portion of your company traded on public exchange ! IPO: first time shares are offered publicly ! Positives: » Liquidity » Credibility “We’re going public for our employees and our investors… we’d work hard to make [their equity] worth a lot and make it liquid, and this IPO is fulfilling our commitment.” – Mark Zuckerberg “Look at Benioff and Bezos, they stole the microphone and controlled the industry. Neither said ‘I don’t want to be public, someone might look at my numbers’” – Doug Leone, Sequoia

Public vs Private Going Public ! More positives: » Big capital base (avg US startup raised $160M prior to IPO, then $470M at IPO) » Involve new class of investors » New acquisition possibilities ! Drawbacks: » Scrutiny of leadership » Disclosures to SEC » Earnings statements & a new approach to investor relations “[public] companies understand they’re owned by shareholders… CEOs must listen” – Peter Weinberg “Companies should be rock solid, both financially and technically, before going public” – Marc Andreessen

Private vs Public Acquired by founder for $25B ~$35B revenue ~$140B revenue Acquired by BRK.A for $23B Staying (or going) Private ! Completely owned by founders and/or investors ! Fewer disclosure requirements ! Private doesn’t necessarily mean small ! Reasons for staying private: » Control (Michael Dell example) » Reduced scrutiny and disclosure requirements » IPOs are very expensive

What does IPO mean for earlier investors? Investment Liquidity Valuation boost Potential dilution Management Equal information Many private investors exit Board/investor hand-off
