In corporate finance, a liquidity event is the merger, purchase or sale of a corporation or an initial public offering. A liquidity event is a typical exit strategy of a company, since the liquidity event typically converts the ownership equity held by a company's founders and investors into cash.
A liquidity event is not to be confused with the liquidation of a company, in which the company's business is discontinued.
