IPO Leader Woodruff Sawyer Releases "The 2021 Guide to Going Public: Directors & Officers Insurance for IPOs and Direct Listings" – PRNewswire

  • Private to Public Milestones Timeline – from developing strategy and corporate governance policies to negotiating coverage and pricing to the first day of trade
  • Key Questions to Ask as You Prepare – what to cover during an initial strategy session on D&O
  • Corporate Governance Policies – implementing corporate governance policies around insider trading, corporate communications and indemnification can help mitigate risk
  • Refine D&O Insurance Limits Analysis – the value of a customized approach
  • Board of Directors Communications – briefing the board on the current issues at play when it comes to protecting themselves
  • Negotiating Coverage and Pricing – how to negotiate when the pricing is challenging

Woodruff Sawyer’s Senior Vice President, Management Liability Priya Huskins confirms, “It’s more important than ever that IPO teams have an experienced partner by their side.  We’re in the midst of a very challenging, very expensive D&O market, due in large part to Security Class Action lawsuits and large settlements.  IPO companies are always surprised at how expensive their D&O insurance will be, and frankly, some find that the price of going public may not be worth the cost. Our goal is to educate and help our clients navigate this difficult environment.”
