Reverse Merger Attorneys
Alternative Option for Turning a Private Company Public
Our reverse merger attorneys have extensive experience of dealing with
reverse acquisitions and reverse takeovers. This is often considered a
quick and common alternative to an Initial Public Offering (IPO) or Direct
Public Offering (DPO). We represent many companies on pink sheet listings,
ensuring a smooth and uneventful acquisition using public company stock.
We are here to take care of the entire process to complete the transaction.
Please get in touch with us to learn more about our reverse acquisition services.
In a reverse merger, one company acquires another, with the acquired company
being the remaining entity as far as accounting is concerned. This type
of merger is usually used as a quicker and less expensive way of making
a private company go public. Rather than going through the initial public
IPO) process that could take months and require more financial resources,
many companies go for the less costly reverse merger, which may only take
weeks to complete.
While it can be considered simpler than other business procedures, reverse
mergers are not necessarily straightforward. If you are thinking about

Make the Right Steps with Our Professional Support
In the reverse merger process, the private company's investors set
up what is called a public "shell company" and acquire a majority
of the shares. The investors then merge the private company with the public
shell company. A shell company is a company that has been registered with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) but has little to no
assets and operations. Using a shell company allows a business to avoid
having to raise large amounts of capital in order to go public.
Taking Your Company Public with Confidence
When you take a private company public through a reverse merger, trading
initially occurs on a minimal level before growing into a larger presence.
With our help, you can decide how you would like your newly reverse-merged
company to begin trading.
Two of the major forms of initial trading are:
Pink Sheets: A way to trade over-the-counter (OTC) stocks without having to meet minimum
requirements or file with the SEC.
OTC Bulletin Board: A listing of small or risky stocks not listed on the NASDAQ Exchange that
still must met regulations and require yearly audits.
After a reverse-merger has taken place, many companies will opt to trade
through the pink sheets due to the lower cost. In recent years, it is
for this reason that foreign companies have had a particular attraction
to business trading through the pink sheets.
