Data from ASX Limited shows that IPO activity slowed significantly in April, with seven new listings raising a combined $97m. This compares with the $1.2bn that was raised from new listings in April 2019. In contrast, the total value of capital raisings by companies that are already listed rose from just $2.3bn in April 2019 to $13.3bn. Max Cunningham, the executive general manager of listings and issuer services, expects the slowdown in IPOs to continue while coronavirus restrictions remain in place.
