What Capital Markets Readiness looks like:
strategic intent, end-to-end visibility
Assessment. Insight. Opportunity.
Economic uncertainty, lower valuations, and continued Fed rate hikes have negatively impacted market conditions, convincing companies and sponsors to hold off on exiting via IPO and seeking alternative paths to raising capital.
In these market conditions, many C-suites are pausing, and looking to go beyond a narrow focus on the immediate steps ahead. They know the most successful transitions to public ownership are grounded in assessment of the full journey: Strategic rationales. Careful due diligence. And the continued build-out of Finance, IT, Tax, Controls and HR infrastructure to meet ongoing, post launch requirements.
"We’re in an extended moment of fluidity and uncertainty, and companies engaging with the capital markets are taking pause to re-assess intention, timing and direction."
