Abstract

After a record year in 2021, there is a sharp slowdown in transactions in the global IPO market in the first and second quarters of 2022. The global IPO market has fallen into low inflation, the global economic growth rate has declined, and the Russian Ukrainian war has led to a sharp sell-off in the IPO market. This article is written against such background, and mainly analyzes two ways of listing, SPAC, and IPO. Based on the analysis and comparison of the process, advantages and disadvantages of SPAC and IPO, this paper summarizes the choices and reasons for investors to choose different listing methods for different companies. On this basis, the future development trend of traditional IPO and SPAC IPO is predicted. The analysis of the two listing methods in this paper is based on the current market performance, and there may be unforeseen changes in the future.
