Going Public

Locate a recent story from The Wall Street Journal or other reputable news source about a company that has gone public through an Initial Public Offering (IPO) within the last year and review their S-1 filing. To locate this, search on EDGAR Company Filings or the investor relations section of their website. To avoid repetition, please find an IPO that other students have not discussed.
