Abstract and Keywords
Stock market entry through an initial public offering (IPO) serves as one stage in the life cycle of a firm. This chapter explores corporate governance in an IPO and evaluates governance issues at an IPO. It first presents some important keys to certain governance influences that affect firms at this point in their life cycle. It then lists the areas of challenge for the firm during this stage and notes that the IPO market and the challenges for companies forming strong governance mechanisms are quickly changing. The chapter also raises some policy issues that can be found at this stage of a firm’s development.
