EY releases Global IPO Trends report for Q3

Global professional services firm EY published its Global IPO Trends report for Q3 2017 today and noted that IPO volume this year has already exceeded totals from 2016, with 1,156 deals raising $127 billion through the first nine months. EY expects final numbers for 2017 to range from 1,600 to 1,700 public offerings and between $190 billion to $200 billion in capital raised.

“The timing for any IPO is dependent on both investors’ appetite for new company stocks, which is driven in part by how well the overall stock market is performing, and by the financial and operational story of the individual company pursuing a public offering,” said Greg Beams, a partner in EY’s Seattle office. “One measure of how hungry investors are for new company stocks is how long it takes a company to go public after they complete the initial filing of their IPO registration documents.”

Crain’s Seattle features EY’s Brian Kaemingk in its “If I Knew Then” section

EY’s Brian Kaemingk is part of the Performance Improvement Analytics team, helping Fortune 500 retail and consumer products companies leverage data to optimize customer experience. He spoke to Crain’s Seattle about his recent participation in EY’s Vantage Program, what it taught him and the impact it’s had in his career.

His mistake? “Focusing too much on moving up and keeping up with the Joneses, in terms of my career. After getting my MBA and starting at EY, I was very motivated to climb the ladder. When you go down that path, however, you become very focused on what’s in front of you, and you don’t take a step back to refresh.”
