Absurd growth expectations, market volatility, peak market valuations, and rate hikes could dash all hope of a graceful public exit for many companies. Again.
We love private companies–its what we do best. When a company IPOs, were admittedly sad to see them go, but thats the circle of life in this business. Even the most patient investor or the most prudent company eventually reaches a point when it needs the kind of capital and scale that only a massive public offering can provide.
But something weird has been going on in the IPO game lately.
Late last year we publisheda list of 130 companies who were most likely to IPO in 2017. Since then, several of those CEOs have explicitly announced that they will not go public this year, postponing indefinitely. Meanwhile, 2016 ended up having the most IPOs formally withdrawn since right before the market crash in 2007. And completed IPOs in 2016 were at the lowest level since the depths of the crisis in 2009. Unfavorable market conditions are most often cited as the reason for delay.
