Just around the corner: an IPO filter on our SEC Filings page (among other cool things)
Our next major upgrade of the Knowledge Mosaic research platform is just around the corner. Expect “KM4” to go live in March, probably early March.
We recently wrote about one of the major new features of the new platform, a substantially expanded and enhanced system for customized email alerting. Today we spotlight another new feature that, while narrower in scope, is potentially just as valuable to some.
As of the KM4 launch, Knowledge Mosaic users will be able to use a new filter on the SEC Filings page for IPOs. We’ve tagged all filings that are part of the initial public offering thread – registration statements, prospectuses, post-effective amendments, even notices of effectiveness from the SEC.
Combining the IPO filter with other search fields, users will be able, for example, to quickly ascertain which initial public offerings by selling stockholders have closed in the last 12 months, or to search for risk factor language in self-underwritten IPOs by technology start-ups headquartered in California.
Of course, these two new features – the new alerting system and the new IPO filer – are not mutually exclusive. You can combine them, allowing you to set up real-time alerts on initial public offerings, which you can tweak and refine to your heart’s content. And as always, everything’s included in your Knowledge Mosaic license. So even if transactional law is not your thing, why not sign up to be notified, say, when Facebook’s IPO goes effective? Wouldn’t it be a refreshing change of pace to be watching what Facebook is doing, instead of the other way around?

UPDATE: The release date has been set for Thursday, March 8.
