IPO Slump – A terrible year for IPOs 👎
The tech IPO market experienced a dramatic collapse in 2022, with many companies needing help to go public and achieve the valuations they had hoped for. This trend is expected to continue into the next year as the market remains uncertain and volatile. Many factors have contributed to the downturn in the tech IPO market, including increased competition, regulatory hurdles, and a general downturn in the economy. Companies previously considered hot prospects for going public have struggled to live up to the hype, leading to lower valuations and less investor interest.
Despite the challenges, some companies have managed to go public successfully in 2022, such as cloud computing firm Snowflake and the online marketplace Poshmark. However, IPO success has been limited, with many companies having to delay their plans. It remains uncertain if the tech IPO market will improve in the coming year. Some experts predict that the market will remain challenging, with companies continuing to face headwinds as they try to go public. However, others believe the market could bounce back as the economy recovers and investor confidence returns. In the meantime, tech companies must be strategic and carefully consider their options as they navigate the volatile IPO market. What do you think about the public markets? And what do you think IPOs will look like in 2023?
