Starting your very own business was probably one of the proudest moments in your life. No longer would you have to work for someone else and earn a pittance, and youíd now be in control of your own destiny. That is a good feeling I know all too well. However, youíll need to start thinking about what youíre going to do if you achieve immense success.
Admittedly, the chances of your company becoming a billion pound multinational corporation are slim, but itís still worth educating yourself about the best ways to proceed should this occur. With that in mind, Iím going to take some time out of my schedule this morning to explain some of the things you might like to consider when floating a company of this size on the stock market. Sure, that might not be the best strategy for everyone, but itís one of the most popular techniques for firms that reach the threshold.
How do I know so much about doing this? Well, although Iíve never got that far with one of my own businesses, I have worked for a number of others that have taken this route. Also, Iíve been doing a lot of research myself over the last couple of weeks. So, you can rest assured the information in this post is current and accurate.
Letís get startedÖ
Getting expert advice
To begin with, youíre going to need some advice from the experts, especially concerning the flow of money in and out of your company. International currency exchange can be a tricky business, but thankfully, there are lots of specialists out there just waiting to give you a hand. Also, it would be worth looking into how this move might affect your tax status in different countries because the last thing you need is to find yourself on the wrong side of HM Revenue and Customs or the IRS.
Set funding goals
Most business owners who choose to float their company on public markets do so to raise some cash. Selling shares in your company could bring in millions overnight, especially if you have a desirable brand and youíve been doing well for at least a couple of years. Considering that, you should make a plan for expansion and set realistic funding goals. You donít want all that money sitting around in a bank account when it could be put to good use. At the end of the day, you have an obligation to make a profit for your investors, and so you should use their cash wisely.
Employ a dedicated press team
One of the main advantages to going public with your business is all the extra press coverage youíll receive. Not only will your company name feature in the newspapers almost every single day, but news teams around the world are likely to take an interest. For that reason, you need a dedicated press team ready to answer any questions they may have. You want to be consistent with all the information you put out into the world, and so this is probably the best technique to use.
Well guys, you should not have a better idea about some of the things you need to bear in mind when taking your firm to the next level. Iím sure youíll do very well if you implement the ideas in this post.
Catch you later!
