A reverse merger is a process whereby a private company can become a public company by acquiring a controlling interest in a public shell company. A reverse merger is an efficient strategy used by some private companies to go public, particularly where a traditional initial public offering (IPO) is not an option. This method of going public does not require filing a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) but does require other security filings, including an initial super 8-K and subsequent 10-Q’s and 10-K’s.
