Do you think there would be any IPOs happening in 2020 giving the bad valuation of the STI in Singapore?

Do you think it's feasible for any IPOs to be successfully launched in the current market climate?

Nope, highly doubt so.

even if there is, probably near the tail end of 2020.

Hi anon, given the shaky market conditions now, it's unlikely to be an IPO right now. History has shown that the most number of IPOs happen during jubilant times.

However, if we were to recover strongly in the second half of 2020, I wouldn't be surprised if companies that have shelved their listing plans go for IPO to capture the market sentiments.

There's a nice chart here which reveals that during the GFC, the IPO activity in the US was very low compared to non-volatile market conditions.

It will be a bad decision for any IPO to come in this year.....
