Initial Offerings Newsletter - Fall 2013

October 2013

As we enter the final quarter of 2013, the market for initial public offerings (IPOs) of stock in the United States is the healthiest it has been in some time. Through September, there have been 152 IPOs on U.S. exchanges, an increase of better than 53  percent from the same time in 2012. After back-to-back quarters of heavy offering activity, the U.S. IPO market is on pace to reach 200 deals, a level reached just twice (2004, 2007) since 2000.*
