After IPO issuances came to a near-halt in late Q1 and early Q2 2020, the window reopened wide this summer when much-needed liquidity infused the markets and led to one of the strongest months for IPOs in 13 years. This two-part executive webinar series was on the novel challenges of capital raising during a pandemic and what your team can do to be prepared when the time is right. We heard from local leaders who have recently completed IPOs or pursued alternative liquidity strategies including direct listings, SPACs, secondary transactions and M&A.
