The Last Word: NYSE’s Lynn Martin on Having Over 200 Listed Companies in the Lone Star State

“Texas is really our home away from home.”

.…on Texas having more than 200 companies listed on the NYSE, via the Dallas Business Journal.

Martin was in Dallas last week meeting with business leaders of some of the 50-plus DFW companies listed on the NYSE, as well as others that may be looking to go public. She was definitely on business-friendly ground in both the city and the Lone Star State, since more than 200 of the nearly 2,400 companies listed on the NYSE are based in Texas.

The Dallas Business Journal’s Holden Wilen snagged a Q&A with Martin, who told him that “2023 should be known as the year of the soft reopening of the IPO markets. We really saw it start in Q2 of this year. A lot of consumer-focused companies went public.”

Martin said she senses growing public confidence in how the economy is doing.

“I think looking at the macroeconomic data, the fact that you still have you have inflation coming down, we have the measures that the Fed has put in place, starting to work—it gives folks confidence that we are really strong,” she told the DBJ. “We are a really resilient economy. Consumers are still actively spending, so there’s a lot of reason to be optimistic about the state of our economy, which is going to be the main driving force behind someone thinking about doing an IPO or not.”
