Event details

Event summary

Given the levels of uncertainty that arose in 2022 – which have persisted into 2023 – it’s unsurprising that fewer companies have chosen to go public during the last year. However, many market practitioners expect the number of going-public transactions and overall exits to increase during the back half of 2023 and into 2024.

Organizations considering an initial public offering typically begin their preparation 12 to 24 months in advance of their exit, making sure they have the people, processes and systems in place to function as a public company. If you’ve been considering an exit, now is the time to capitalize on the current landscape and build a foundation for long-term growth by being prepared when the market reopens.

Join us for a 75-minute webcast where advisers from Cooley, PwC, Nasdaq, The Blueshirt Group and DFIN, as well as executives from market-leading companies:

  • Discuss the current landscape for capital raising and anticipate when the IPO window will reopen.
  • Share their experiences with recently completed IPOs, special purpose acquisition company mergers, direct listings, secondary listings and M&A amid current market conditions.
  • Address the level of preparation necessary to go public and operate as a public company.
  • Outline what your team can do to take advantage of this time to prepare for when the market returns.

Cooley partner Dave Peinsipp spoke at this event.
