In light of the current headwinds across the capital markets landscape, private companies and their key stakeholders are facing significant and rapidly evolving funding challenges. As IPO, SPAC and merger activity remains subdued, it is as important as ever for private companies and their investors to optimize funding strategies while best positioning for the future.

Companies that are turning to the private capital markets are finding greater selectivity from investors, meaningful shifts in investor priorities, valuation resets, and the revival of structural protections for investors.

Join us for a panel discussion about how companies are navigating the realities of being private in today’s challenging environment, the key issues they are facing, and our outlook for the capital markets for the remainder of 2023 and beyond.
