2014 was a big year for venture exits, with a total of 845 liquidity events totaling $78.4 billion. While valuations have risen, acquisition activity has been down, with much of the loss in activity made up by IPOs and buyouts by financial buyers. The public markets were exceptionally strong in 2014, creating favorable conditions for venture-backed companies to execute that long-awaited IPO.*
With this in mind, please join the leaders of KPMG’s Venture capital Practice, Brian Hughes, Conor Moore, and Francois Chadwick, who will discuss the following timely topics:
The current state of the IPO market, sector trends, performance of recent issuers, and outlook
Benchmarking of recent IPO companies, including scale, liquidity, timetable and costs
Tax perspectives that financial executives should consider during the preparation period
