US IPOs: The Market and Legal Developments

Despite a rise in IPO activity, commentators continue to question whether the trend toward companies deferring initial public offerings and remaining private longer will be a new norm.  During this session, the presenters will discuss:

  • Whether cross-over (or late stage) private rounds still remain an important milestone on the road to the IPO
  • U.S. IPO activity (sectors, VC- and PE-backed companies, foreign private issuer activity, syndicate structures)
  • Disclosure and governance trends among IPO issuers
  • Direct listings
  • Possible JOBS Act 3.0 changes
  • Multiple share classes
  • Other developments
