From the Paper:

"Recent developments have indicated that Gene One, a leader in the biotechnology industry, must become a public entity to remain successful (University of Phoenix, 2006). When faced with the challenges associated with an initial public offering (IPO), a thorough examination of the situation allows the perspectives of all stakeholders to be considered. Additionally, with an analysis of the situation, a course of action to reach end-state goals can be implemented. This particular course of action must be thoroughly researched and premeditated to ensure the best possible results for both the company and the stakeholders."
