Considering an IPO? Try a logic-based approach.

What we call "Series I" IPO principles are increasingly recognized as common sense and in the best interest of any strong company going public. Review our roadmap for running a rigorous price discovery and allocation process and consider for yourself all the data supporting "Series I" logic over myth-based conventional IPOs.

"Running a Series I for Synthorx and applying these principles to the Silverback IPO put management in the driver’s seat and allowed us to discover a fair price and build a more engaged shareholder base. The framework is logical and worth careful consideration by every management team planning an IPO."

- Laura Shawver, CEO, Silverback and former CEO of Synthorx (acquired by Sanofi)
