In an IPO, the advantage is with the person who decides the timing (and subsequently the pricing). As such, the stakeholder who decides the timing has the advantage.

If the seller (Olam International) is able to decide the timing, it is advantageous to the seller and its shareholders. When food security and prices first came into vogue due to the Russia-Ukraine war in Feb2022, it made great sense to list and take advantage of it. Everything about food has slightly abated since then but as long as the seller isn't forced to list, it should make good use of its advantage to determine the timing.
