I have several profitable corporations that I'd like to eventually go public with. One recurring theme I'm seeing though is a message like this... "The P/E of this corporation (28.2) is too high for an IPO (< 12.0)"

It meets the value and assets goals, but I have no idea how I can influence this segment. Any assistance someone could offer would be greatly appreciated.

As long as the market value is at least 175b and the assets are at least 80b, you should be able to do an IPO. For an IPO, P/E doesn't matter. The automation is lying when it says that a P/E <12.0 is necessary for an IPO.

It's a 2 out of 3 arrangement.

Market value greater than 175B
P/E ratio less than 12.0
Corporation Assets greater than 80B

As long as you meet 2 out of 3 of those, it's good to go.

if you want to get into public corporations you are going to have to learn P/E
companies with high profits and low market value have low P/e
