I have a public-reporting, clean shell entity. This shell entity is completely new, never operated any business before, fully reporting with the SEC (Securities & Exchange Commission). If you have a company with an operating business, this could be the best way for you to go public.

A "reverse merger" is a method by which a private company goes public. In a reverse merger, a private company merges with a public company usually with no assets or liabilities. By merging into such an entity, a private company becomes publicly-reporting under the surviving public entity.

This information is for illustrative purposes only. It is not and should not be regarded as investment advice or as a recommendation on any particular security or course of action. This not an offer to buy or sell a security. Other methods are available as a means to become a public company, therefore you should conduct considerable research and consult your attorney to determine all of your options carefully.
