2019 IPO Outlook — A Bellwether Year for the New Tech Elite?
Nov 15th, 2018
As the bull market charged into its ninth year in 2018, with the FAANG tech giants (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet’s Google) leading U.S. equities markets to record highs, many of us thought we would have seen stronger IPO activity. However, with under two months left of 2018 and despite favorable market conditions, this year’s U.S. IPO count is still nearly 100 IPOs lower than 2014’s total of 275 priced IPOs. Our team at EquityZen took a closer look at the companies we believe are primed to go public in 2019.
