The process of going public in the US is governed by the Securities Act of 1933. Usually, if companies decide to go public, an underwriting bank supports the process. After the due diligence, the offering prospectus is prepared. This document includes general information about the firm, future prospects, the competitive environment, and audited financial statements for the most recent three years. With the prospectus the company and its underwriter(s) promote the issue in road shows.
