  Article Summary  
While the allure of an IPO - offering shares to employees, a cash windfall and media attention - is attractive and powerful, many more factors go into a decision to file an initial public offering.

Numerous IPO benefits can be offset by potential drawbacks like greater pressures, higher costs and less control.

Deciding on whether to file an IPO is informed by weighing four benefits, three drawbacks and answers to three questions.

Los Angeles and Southern California executives and their leadership teams who are deliberating a potential initial public offering can benefit from talking with a provider of outsourced CFO services.

An on-demand CFO brings both client-side and services-side expertise in making sound "yes" and "no" decisions on moving forward with an IPO, as well as in completing IPOs successfully.
