Financials — a mix of banks, financial services The number of new registrants into the pipeline is up from Q1. These companies are raising more capital and are strong candidates to go public in 2013 due to higher liquidity and valuations. Currently, 14 IPOs are priced to raise more than $6.5 billion in the coming weeks. The strong U.S. IPO market also attracted foreign private issuers, (FPI). Twelve FPIs filed for IPOs in Q2 compared to six in Q1 and two in Q4 2012.

IPOs backed by private equity, (PE), and Venture Capital (VC) firms represent 52% of the deals in Q2. In fact,7 of the top 10 deals in 2013 were PE backed, a function of PE looking to make exits from investments at the beginning of the recession. So far this year, PE firms have spent $35.9 billion in Technology sector deals, making it the second most

and brokerage firms — coming in at a close second. Rounding out the top four sectors is Technology and Real Estate. Technology is a fast growing sector with companies still trying to position themselves for changes the cloud and mobility have brought about. The real estate market continues to be on an upswing in the U.S. and Canada. Recently, we’ve seen an increase in market volatility. However investors are out there looking for competitive pricing, the right management team to instill confidence, and a good company story. The window of opportunity can open and shut at a moment’s notice, but I expect we’ll see continued IPO activity in the second half of the year.
