HLB Mann Judd’s latest IPO Watch report shows that 23 companies listed on the Australian sharemarket in the first half of 2019, compared with 39 during the same period in 2018. Meanwhile, just $823m was raised via IPOs during the first half, down from $2.5bn in the previous corresponding period. Marcus Ohm of HLB does not expect IPO activity to improve during the September quarter, while he says the outlook for the final quarter of 2019 may depend on how the sharemarket performs. At present, just eight companies are seeking to list in the second half of 2019.
