Our Challenge

With plant-based food being the fastest-growing category in grocery and food service channels, a private manufacturer sought to embrace market enthusiasm, and at the optimal time within the company’s financial reporting cycle.  The organization engaged one of Focus Search Partners’ (FSP) highly experienced CFOs to accomplish a nearly impossible feat—successfully drive the firm’s RTO transaction and list it on a public exchange in under 120 days, and with a small finance and leadership team largely inexperienced in IPOs and public company operations.
