Going public is not one of the easiest projects a business can go into, especially if the owners of the business do not have the necessary skills and expertise to enter the stock market. However, this step is probably the most important decision a CEO or business owner can make considering the benefits that come with being listed on a stock exchange.
One of the advantages a publicly traded company has is the opportunity to attract potential investors from anywhere across the globe based on an active liquid market for buyers and sellers. This also helps in significantly increasing the value of the business, which is also dependent on different factors.

However, this does not stop them from having their stocks publicly traded on the OTC Markets / OTCBB, some of which include OTCQX, OTCQB, and OTCPIN.
Advantages of going public
