The Australian IPO market remained robust in 2015-16, with some bright spots ahead for 2017. Despite some economic headwinds, the IPO window has remained open over the past 12 to 18 months, with continued investor appetite for appropriately priced and quality assets that would deliver strong yields.
Standouts were in the technology and innovation sector, healthcare, and food and agriculture. While 2015-16 saw relatively few IPOs from large-caps, there was still good volume at the small and mid-cap end of the market.
