Going Public 
Assessing and accessing the public equity market requires special attention to two fundamental issues:  

  1. Maximizing values and the selection of the appropriate investment venue.  
  2. Murdock Capital's important relationships with numerous investment banking firms, NASDAQ market makers, the NYSE and AMEX specialist firms, is an invaluable asset in an Initial Public Offering endeavor.   Utilization of RTO’s and public company shells is often viable alternatives, and Murdock Capital has broad experience and familiarity with all aspects of these types of transactions.
