A Look at This Year’s IPOs by Industry

November 1, 2010

With two months left in the year, here’s a look at how IPOs are shaping up by industry sector.  (Industries with five or more filing companies appear on the chart).

Thus far in 201o, by our count, a total of 337 companies have filed at least the first round of paperwork to go public (excludes investment companies filing form N-2).   That means that the number of IPO filings from just nine industries is equal to the number from all other industries combined.   And just three industries — computer and software services, business services, and the banking and financial services sector — account for nearly a quarter of all such filings.
