Hello Investors,

Where are the Tech IPOs in 2016?

There have been two venture-backed, US technology IPOs in 2016 with $100M+ in 2015 revenue. Two! That's it.

So this is what happens when there aren't many tech IPOs:

TWLO, up 259% since IPO

Twilio (TWLO), up 259% since June IPO.

And this:

Acacia Communications (ACIA), up 393% since May IPO.

Demand for tech stocks exceeds available shares, and thus, share prices increase and fundamentals get a bit wonky:

This gets other tech companies excited, which is why you see these recent events:

So, expect an active September IPO calendar. This should also help:

Low volatility = favorable IPO window.
