2015 BDO IPO Outlook

January 2015

In 2014, initial public offerings (IPOs) on U.S. exchanges experienced significant growth in both the number of offerings and proceeds raised. This was the third consecutive year of increases, as both offerings and proceeds reached the highest levels since the dot-com boom of 2000. Virtually every statistical category - offerings (+24%), proceeds (+55%) and filings (+44%) - were up dramatically in 2014, with proceeds experiencing the biggest jump due largely to the $22 billion Alibaba IPO.*

What about 2015?

According to the 2015 BDO IPO Outlook, BDO USA's annual survey of capital markets executives at leading investment banks, the coming year will bring incremental growth in U.S. IPO activity.
