The number of Initial Public Offerings (or IPOs) in the last while has been quite low. And, as such, there might be some capital in the public market just waiting to be tapped into.
In the video below, I talk about how the original income trust structure that was used to tap into those public markets was killed in 2006 but has been brought back to life through PwC FAIT. I also talk about how the structure takes into consideration cross-border issues, how it's worked so far, and other issues to consider when going through an IPO.
What do you think? Could this be something that might apply to you and your organization? Leave your thoughts and comments below.
For those attending the Canadian Tax Foundation's Annual Conference in Calgary on November 26th, I look forward to seeing you there (and to talking more about this in detail)!
