The Japanese conglomerate could take the American software and consultancy company public to accelerate growth in the supply-chain business. It is expected that the gross proceeds from the initial public offering (IPO) would make it easier for Panasonic to hire staff and make further acquisitions.

Also, through the public debut, Panasonic will try to further boost its operating business' independence. After taking a minority stake in 2020, Panasonic took full control over Blue Yonder in 2021.

The American software company was established in 1985, and it makes software for supply-chain management and uses innovative technologies like artificial intelligence to predict product demand.

Here's what we know about Blue Yonder IPO

Yuki Kusmi, the chief executive officer of Panasonic, has reportedly indicated that the IPO will happen outside of Japan. Most likely, Blue Yonder IPO will happen in the United States, but the public debut is uncertain.

Given the recent turbulence in the market, it seems highly unlikely that the American software company would consider going public at this time and interested investors might have to wait for the storm to settle.

In 2021, the IPOs had a stellar run, and in 2022, they didn't receive the desired response from investors. Recession fears are looming over the world after inflation keeps rising, and the US Federal Reserve also announced that it had hiked the interest rates.

It is difficult to predict when Blue Yonder IPO will happen. Interested investors could monitor the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) website to find out the IPO plans whenever they file documents.

Bottom line

Generally, retail investors consider buying IPO stocks to get higher returns. However, this is not always true, and sometimes the stocks open below the desired price at the time of debut, and investors incur losses.

In 2022, many investors lost their money as the stocks of private companies did not receive the desired response and opened at lower prices. Hence, it is necessary to study market conditions before investing.
