Fireside Chat: Overview of European IPO and carve-out activity

IPO activity has slowed globally as volatility in markets has increased in-line with rising interest rates and macro-economic pressures. What it the future of the product, will we see a prolonged period of malaise in European IPOs or are there still some exciting potential deals, like the IPO of Porsche last year that cab buck even a bad market

  • The importance of staying local when it comes to listing on capital market - is this still the case or are European exchanges losing their lustre?
  • Can we take anything away from ARMs decision to pursue a US listing over one on the LSE? Has London's star fallen or are we just hitting a bump in the road?
  • Which IPOs have been successful, and which have been disappointing?
  • Why was Porsche so successful in such a bad IPO year.
  • Are carveouts the right solution to the challenging market conditions and what are the current challenges or will companies refrain from separations?
  • Have we seen the IPO investor base change and are we now seeing sovereign wealth funds start to stretch
      their muscles a little more in Europe?
