WJR Business Beat with Jeff Sloan: IPO Marketing Slowing (Episode 53)

We’ve highlighted on previous Business Beat segments how early stage funding from angels and venture capitalists, for example, is slowing amid the COVID-19 crisis. But now we’ve got news that the Initial Public Offering marketplace is beginning to show signs of slowing, as well.

On this morning’s WJR Business Beat, Jeff breaks down some recent statistics just released showing that the IPO market is beginning to show signs of slowing. In Q1 2020, IPO activity for U.S.-based startups saw a 25 percent decline from Q4 2019, a very significant decline quarter over quarter.
