As we near the end of 2021, a few uncertainties lie ahead that could increase market volatility and challenges for a successful IPO. 

In the meantime, companies should be looking to make the most of the favorable market conditions and go public. 

We expect a steady pipeline of deals. However, a host of uncertainties remain: geopolitical tensions, regulatory changes in flux, inflation risks and tapering by the US Federal Reserve. At the same time, new variants of the COVID-19 pandemic are disrupting a full global economic recovery, and most sectors are affected.

Serious IPO candidates should look to prepare themselves as early as possible and be ready to launch quickly, if needed.
