The commercial real estate industry may be due for a boom in public offerings, according to panelists at the NYU Schack Institute’s Capital Markets forum last week.
“I think that when we look back a year from now we will have the potential to do more on the IPO side than we have in the past couple,” said Jeffrey D. Horowitz, head of global real estate, gaming and lodging at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Horowitz cited a number of deals currently in the works that, if successful, could drive more companies to go public in search of funds. The past two or three years have seen four or five IPOs a year, according to Horowitz.
