Whether the public markets are ‘ready’ is another question; the attractiveness of public markets here in the US for typical ‘web 2.0’ company is significantly weaker than it was in 2000.
Amen to that. i whole heartedly agree. i think it is banker driven market, since they wall want to do something… anything
Do you hear anything about a Tellme IPO? They were supposed to be hot but I don’t hear much about them any more.
For my money, the only lock IPO this year is Calix.
Its not whether public markets are ‘ready’ or if the bankers want to do them…the post Enron regulatory environment makes those 2000 tech IPOs difficult to justify. The current reality is that it is significantly harder to be a publicly traded company then it used to be.
