Helping you take your company to the next level
Taking a company public can boost its profile and provide much needed capital resources. To optimize an initial public offering (IPO) requires a significant understanding of the current IPO market: significant exits; trends in deal prices, sizes and returns; sectors on the rise; and more.
IPO Insights delivers the latest information and analysis on quarterly IPO activity and performance to help business leaders take their companies to the next level.
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.
