REIT Legal Expert Sees Challenging IPO Market
May 22, 2019 | Sarah Borchersen-Keto | Reit.com
The REIT market has seen just a single initial public offering (IPO) this year, and signs are pointing to a dearth of activity for the remainder of 2019, according to Justin Salon, REIT practice co-chair at law firm Morrison & Foerster LLP.
“Typically, you have a handful. To have just one as we sit here almost at June is certainly a downturn in the market,” Salon said. While Morrison & Foerster currently has two IPOs in registration, generally “we’re not seeing a whole lot…we may see a couple this year,” he added.
Postal Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: PSTL), a REIT that owns and manages properties leased to the United States Postal Service (USPS), listed on the New York Stock Exchange on May 15.
