Despite Snap's much-hyped debut, the initial public offering (IPO) market's prospects still remain considerably in flux, mainly as that one debut was so much of an outlier in many respects. Given private equity and venture capital firms' unique sets of incentives, the picture becomes much more interesting. PitchBook's 2016 US PE & VC IPO Market Review breaks down multiple datasets in order to provide a compact overview of relevant metrics and private investor-sponsored debut activity in general. Sponsored by Deloitte, the Review also includes their industry experts' analysis of what factors private companies should focus on as they prepare to go public.
Report Highlights Include:
- PE & VC-backed IPO activity in the US
- Metrics such as median & average IPO size, post-valuation and more
- Comparison of current market caps to most recent venture post-valuation
