Is the IPO drought finally over? Is another IPO boom around the corner? With approximately 119 IPOs in the pipeline and an average of nine pricings per month, versus some months with none at all last year, there is a renewed optimism in the IPO market. A successful IPO is now possible for a strong business with strategic timing. Nonetheless, there are still valid hesitations until recent IPOs show performance and traction as a group.

This webinar will discuss current trends in the IPO market, key considerations before embarking on a process, as well as critical early action items a company should take to be ready to go public in the months ahead.

We hope you'll log in for a timely and lively discussion.
