Middle Market Equity Capital Report – Q1 2015


4/23/15

Heading out of 2014, a continuation of record-breaking IPO activity was forecasted for 2015. However, Q1 2015 fell far short of expectations and as a result raises more questions than there are definitive answers to explain the 46% drop in IPO activity when compared to Q1 2014. The decrease in IPO activity was particularly felt among middle market companies. 

Each quarter seems to unveil its own unique landscape complete with upward and downward market forces—some glaringly apparent and others less so. Middle market equity capital transactions took a breather in Q1. However, positive market conditions prevailed throughout most of the quarter and are likely to remain supportive of additional IPO and follow-on activity as we move through the remainder of 2015.

As the IPO pipeline replenishes, Q1 has given us plenty of opportunity to offer analysis, observations, and insights, but more than anything else, we are left with many questions with answers which will unfold as we move forward through 2015.

If you are the leader of a private or public middle-market company, the data, observations, and insights included in CohnReznick’s Q1 2015 Middle Market Equity Capital Report will help you make better strategic decisions.
