How the IPO market went from “boom to bust”.

From the best of times to the worst of times, the IPO market has fallen off a cliff in 2022. Investors faced with high inflation and rising interest rates have abandoned high-flying growth stocks and turned to safer, more profitable alternatives. The decline was notable given the record level of proceeds generated from the public markets just a year earlier. According to data from EY and Dealogic, US-listed companies raised over $155 billion in IPOs in 2021. In the first half of 2022, they raised just $4.8 billion. “Investors are really risk-averse right now, and that’s really affecting the lack of activity that we’re seeing,” Rachel Gerring, head of IPOs at EY Americas, said in an interview with CNBC. “They’re looking for companies that are more focused on growth and profitability than the growth-at-any-costs we’ve seen in 2021.” Watch the video above to find out how the 2022 IPO market will bounce off the boom went bankrupt and whether experts forecast a recovery for 2023.
