Some company owners are desperate for a liquidity event, but is anyone this desperate? We received an email from a Santa Monica, California outfit with this message: “We specialize in assisting emerging companies in “Going Public” … I wish I could covey to you, all the many benefits of going public in a brief letter. I am not sure if you can imagine how valuable and powerful a public company can be in achieving your goals and objectives.” If this email reached anyone that just yanked a BDC, we're sure they can.
