Slideshow: Top 10 PE-Backed Companies Waiting To Go Public

By Luisa Beltran — 5 years ago

Did broad market volatility last week slam shut the IPO window?

It’s not really clear. IPOs, in August, typically fall into a lull as much of Wall Street goes on vacation. Fourth quarter is usually the strongest time for new offerings. But August has been very slow. Eleven IPOs were pulled last week due to poor market conditions. Of these, four were PE-backed, according to Dealogic.

Carbonite, last week, succeeded in going public (shares of the company rose nearly 24%). Including Carbointe, only three deals have priced this month (SandRidge Permian Trust and American Capital Mortgage Investment Corp. are the other two). Only one other deal is on deck for August, Dealogic says.

It’s not clear what will happen to companies waiting to go pubic. There are 54 private equity-backed companies that have filed for IPOs this year, worth a combined $12.54 billion, Dealogic says. Last year at this time, we also had 54 PE-backed companies that registered for an offering, raising a combined $15.8 billion. This included HCA’s $3.5 billion deal.

The IPO window will likely open back up but it’s not clear what companies will be able to go pubilc. Of course, just because a company files for an IPO doesn’t necessarily mean it will go public. Many times, companies file and just sit in registration as they wait for the perfect time to IPO. Or, as they wait, they get sold.

Here’s a list of the top 10 PE-backed IPO’s that are currently in registration, according to Dealogic.
