2015’s IPO slowdown by the numbers

Just how bad was the IPO freeze of 2015? Public offerings were fewer and smaller, new data confirmed Tuesday.

Only 51 IPOs priced in the second half of 2015, the smallest batch since 2012, according to Proskauer’s Capital Market Group 2016 IPO study. Not only did pricings slow down, but the annual aggregate deal value of $30.1 billion was the lowest since 2009, with companies seeing “down rounds” and fewer “mega IPOs,” the report found.
