With 131 IPO pricings year to date, compared with just 91 at this time last year, the US IPO market appears to be regaining its pre-2008 form. A fifth of the year's deals have gained more than 50%, and the average return for all deals has remained above 25% for several weeks. Seeing the IPO window open, a broad basket of consumer, technology, health care and energy deals has filled a public, active pipeline of 110 companies* looking to raise approximately $31 billion. At least 75 other names are likely in the confidential pipeline, which was created by the JOBS Act last year. Many of these companies could file publicly as late as mid-November and still price this year. Altogether, we estimate that there are at least 70 companies poised to go public between now and year end, which would bring IPO activity back to the healthy 200-deal level last seen in 2007.
