The US initial public offering (IPO) market is slowly bouncing back after a bad 2016, buoyed by more investor confidence, and a more favourable – and stable - economic landscape. Listings last year dropped by one-third compared to 2015, one of the worst performances seen in equity markets in recent years.

And with a number of high-profile issuances expected to take place in 2017, IFLR’s latest poll takes a look at some of the potential main contributing factors that could bolster the US IPO market further.

These include:

  • extending confidential filings to all markets;
  • increasing antitrust oversight to reduce M&A levels;
  • revisiting the Jobs Act;
  • speeding up the IPO process; and
  • other.
