Q1 2020 Highlights
- Q1 2020 exit activity slowed in early March; of the 24 IPOs recorded in Q1, just two were brought to market in March.
- Healthcare listings dominated the IPO market in the first quarter.
- Only 29 percent of the IPOs ended the quarter in positive territory (versus a five-year average of 63 percent).
- Until the stock markets stabilize, consider the IPO markets shut. Now is the time to build the business. Expect to see some pre-IPO candidates step up their investment into new technologies and R&D.
