After hitting a rough patch earlier this year due to the pandemic, the IPO season really took off in the latter half of 2020 in North America. According to an October 2020 report by Ernst and Young, there was a 14 percent year-to-date climb in the total number of IPOs filed globally this year, and a 43 percent year-to-date rise in their proceeds of US$ 165.3 billion. The report added that in North and South America together, IPO activity raised about US$ 62.4 billion in proceeds.

Finally, there’s ‘transition to market competition’. This step kicks off 25 days after the IPO, which is an SEC-mandated “quiet period”. After the 25-day quiet period, underwriters can give estimates about the issuing company’s earnings and valuation. So, how would you know if your IPO was successful? An IPO is deemed successful when the issuing company’s market cap is equal to or more than that of its industry competitors within 30 days of the launch. It is also considered successful if the difference between the company’s offering price and market cap is less than 20 percent 30 days after the IPO.
