After a lengthy period with few IPO offerings, recent initial public offerings may be a sign that the IPO window may be open again—at least temporarily.
Womble Carlyle Corporate & Securities attorney Sandy Smith
discussed the recent trend with Law360
"There's a lot of good product waiting to go public," Smith tells Law360 senior reporter Liz Hoffman. "But we're always thinking from a sponsor side that it's us driving it, that we're creating the value and once we've done that, the public markets will just eat it up. The bigger part is that there's finally demand."
