Last Week Emerald Exhibition (EE) filed the S-1 that includes the first draft of its prospectus to go public. Because it’s the first draft a lot of information (like price per share and number to be sold) is missing. Still, it’s worth a review. We’ll summarize the company’s history and activities, look at the financial results, talk about their market and how they see themselves competing, and discuss why they are going public. I also want to point out a risk factor they seem to ignore.
Who’s Emerald Exhibitions?
What is now called EE was acquired from The Nielsen Company by Onex in 2013.
