6 IPOs On Tap For This Week

6 IPOs On Tap For This Week

Last year wasn't incredibly receptive to the IPO market, but prospects appear to be brighter for the current year, as an Ernst & Young report predicts that the United States will lead a recovery in global IPO activity in 2017.

The report said there is now a pipeline of more than 130 companies ready to list, excluding those that have filed their IPO registrations confidentially. The firm projects 2017 will surpass the number of IPOs in 2016, and the trend toward lower deal sizes may likewise persist.

“Although uncertainty remains over what President-elect Donald Trump’s policies will mean for companies, investors, markets and the U.S. economy, early market signals are positive,” the report said.

Meanwhile, six firms will celebrate their trading debut this week, with three of them expected to list on Nasdaq, two on NYSE and one on NYSE MKT.
