Abstract

The Article examines the reverse merger method of going public. It describes the principal features of reverse mergers, including deal structure and legal compliance. Although reverse mergers are routinely pitched as cheaper and quicker than traditional IPOs, the Article argues that such pitches are misleading and, for many companies, irrelevant.
