"Corporate Governance and Disclosure Practices of Venture-Backed Companies in U.S. Initial Public Offerings"
Posted by Gordon Smith

A recent report from Wilson Sonsini on venture-backed IPOs has lots of interesting tidbits, for example:

  • Almost all of the companies are incorporated in Delaware (94%).
  • More companies separated the chairman and CEO roles than combined them.
  • Board committees at these companies frequently included venture capitalists who had invested in the companies (counting the VCs as independent," despite their share ownership). 
  • Almost all of the companies (98%) had adopted a code of business conduct.
  • Over 80% of the companies implemented a classified board in connection with the IPO.

Lots more in the report. Thanks to Richard Blake for the tip.
