Much to my chagrin, we probably won’t get tech IPOs until the end of the year

But there are reasons to be optimistic, we will have a good crop of public offers

The IPO market 2023 so far has been a chicken egg, and we probably won’t get any interesting IPOs for another quarter or two. It’s incredibly sad for your friendly local TechCrunch+ reporting team who love an S-1 more than anything else.

The good news is that when we get the IPO train back on track, we should be able to see a pretty good streak of public market debuts.

Let’s talk why.

The Exchange explores startups, markets and money.

If you dig into Silicon Valley Bank’s research, which looks quite different now than it did two weeks ago, you can get a pretty good idea of ​​why the institutions aren’t expecting a wave of IPOs in the near future. In its H1 2023 State of the Markets Report, SVB predicted that the market for “venture capital-backed U.S. tech IPOs is likely to remain dormant in the first half of 2023.”

So far it has been 100% correct.

However, the bank also predicted that as “the market gets clarity on the [interest] ceiling rate [and] futures earnings multiples align with long-term averages and pent-up demand from institutional investors” and unicorns, we should expect no less than ten IPOs in the second half from funded companies by venture capital.

When we first read this a while ago, we were a little optimistic. Why would we go from zero to double digits in such a short time?

Since then, we have a little more context. TechCrunch+ recently spoke with Arjun Kapur, Managing Partner and Founder of Forecast Labs, on the subject of the IPO.

(Forecast Labs is a sister entity to Comcast Ventures. Comcast Ventures is a venture capital firm that invests in areas of strategic interest to its parent company, Comcast NBCUniversal, a business merger that spans access Internet to cable TV to content itself In contrast, trades equity for access to TV advertising, essentially offering CPA-based advertising at a lower than market rate on the tube against fairness. It’s a pretty good model for companies that want to reach a wider consumer audience, but at a discount.)
