What Pre-IPO Companies Need To Know About International Compliance

Vibato, the only provider of the fixed-price, best-practice, modular approach to meeting Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and SAS-related compliance requirements, today announced its participation in a webinar focused on pre-IPO compliance issues. The event is part of a series hosted by High Street Partners, the international business services provider.

Planning a Public Offering? Stay on Top of International Compliance will be an interactive discussion about planning for public offerings, with an international perspective on compliance considerations. Speakers and panelists include Larry Harding, President of High Street Partners, Teresa Bockwoldt, CEO of Vibato, and Jim Anderson, President of SVB Analytics.

This webinar is scheduled for March 4, 2010 from 1:00 - 2:00 pm (EST). Register here.

“This webinar series brings together thought-leaders who are focused on issues of high importance to anyone operating overseas,” said Larry Harding, president of High Street Partners, Inc. “We’re kicking off with a discussion of pre-IPO compliance because we believe in an “ounce of prevention” approach when it comes to proper internal controls, having seen too often what can happen when companies don’t get off on the right foot when operating internationally.”

“We are thrilled to get in front of an audience that needs to understand compliance from a pre-IPO perspective,” said Teresa Bockwoldt, chief executive officer, Vibato. “Our belief is that having a solid best-practice approach to use as a guide while a company expands internationally will provide an advantage from the start. And Pre-IPO companies especially need to be cognizant of compliance issues as they make the transition to publicly traded firms.”

Subsequent events in the HSP series include European VAT recovery and EU employment contract discussions. Additional sponsors and panelists include Bowne, Osborne-Clark, Silicon Valley Bank and Global Tax Network. For more information, visit
