Building the ideal pre-IPO board5/5/2011 Lee Hanson
The initial public offering market is bouncing back as global economies recover. In 2010 U.S. IPO volumes soared to over 150, raising over $35 billion. This volume represents an increase in both volume and valuation from 2009 and 2008 numbers. This increase was led by financial sponsorbacked offerings as well as an influx in international participation.
