Embracing a new Financial Reality that an IPO or Recapitalization Brings

Navigating an Initial Public Offering (IPO) or recapitalization can be a complex journey with a myriad of financial, personal, and emotional implications.

In our experience, it helps to discuss your goals and priorities with your advisor well in advance of the event to make sure you are well prepared to address important questions the moment presents, such as: 

  • How do I incorporate the proceeds of the IPO into my long-term financial plans?
  • Is it better to exercise or hold my stock options? 
  • Am I eligible for any other tax mitigation strategies (e.g., qualified small business stock exemptions)?
  • Should I adjust my goals and priorities, and if so, do I need to reflect those changes in my estate plan or philanthropic strategy? 

We’ll help you make sense of the financial and emotional implications of these events and help you have a clearer sense on how to achieve the best possible outcomes for you and your family.
