The recent market turmoil has put much of the IPO market in limbo. But when windows to the public market open, what’s required for successful execution? To answer this question and more, IPO Edge and the Palm Beach Hedge Fund Association hosted the first 2022 IPO Edge Boot Camp featuring senior management from recently-listed Bowlero Corp. (NYSE: BOWL) and SES AI Corp. (NYSE: SES) along with investment bankers, attorneys and other leading market participants. The live event featured speakers from Nasdaq, Gallagher, Vinson & Elkins, Stifel, ICR, GTS, and Morrow Sodali, running approximately 90 minutes and including a live Q&A session with the audience. Sentieo and Dealogic provided custom data for the event.

Craig M. DeDomenico, Managing Director, Equity and Equity-Linked Capital Markets, Stifel, points to IPO readiness as a key focus in current market conditions. As part of his practice at Stifel, he emphasizes providing multiple paths to listing and the flexibility to pivot down different paths as market conditions change. Many of his clients are more mature companies, with 2/3 coming from the PE and VC worlds, which means they have well-established financial reporting standards – already delivering polished finanicals to boards and shareholders. With the current “hurry up and wait” mentality, he aims to position clients so that they are on the front end or in the middle of the cycle after markets re-open.
