Abstract

While more firms choose to go public, more risks are involved. To reduce accompanied risks, we review the theory, evidence, and correspondence strategies on different risks of IPO activity: (1) IPO failure risk, (2) litigation risk, and (3) systematic risk. Our perspectives are threefold: First, we evaluate the life cycle theory and market time theory of pre-IPO activity. We believe that going public at the right timing and with reasonable market forecast will reduce failure risk. Second, the potential cost of litigation risk is high, and the risk is related to underperformance and misstatement. Third, market factors are the determinants of risk levels. We conclude that litigation risk is in fact rather threatening due to the nature of exposure and transparency.
