Hello Investors,

A few quick updates this week.

Four tech companies are expected to make their public debuts over the coming days:

  • Docusign plans to list on the NASDAQ under the ticker DOCU with an expected pricing range of $24-$26.
  • Ceridian HCM plans to list on the NYSE under the ticker CDAY with an expected pricing range of $19-$21.
  • Smartsheet plans to list on the NYSE under the ticker SMAR with an expected pricing range of $12-$14.
  • Carbon Black plans to list on the NASDAQ under the ticker CBLK with an expected pricing range of $15-17.

These stocks will join a handful of IPOs that already closed YTD. Tech IPOs have gotten off to a strong start so far this year, with most trading well above their initial offering prices.

And while we are on the subject...the flurry of IPO activity we have seen year-to-date has brought about an uptick in another corporate action: stock splits. Splits can create confusion for investors and we get a lot of questions on why companies choose to use them and what impact they have on returns. We shed some light on this topic with our blog post last week.
