The IPO is slightly up YoY with about 100 companies having filed plans with the SEC to go public. Investors are also looking forward to future filings from “Unicorns” such as Waymo, which had been valued at $30 billion before the coronavirus pandemic hit; Palantir, analytics/Big Data company, which had been valued at $11 billion; and Stripe, a credit card processing company serving websites, which had been valued at $22.5 billion.
John Eade, President, Argus Research, stated:
Although the shutdown has impacted the markets, they will be back. We believe that raising and allocating capital are among the nation’s core competencies and critical for growth. Down the road, we think investors will again be eager to snap up biotech and genetic companies and cloud-based computing firms.
