2016 has seen lowest number of US IPOs year-to-date since 2009

In 2014, the US IPO market had a record year. There were 229 companies headquartered in the United States that went public, which made up $55 billion in gross proceeds. This marked the most deals and largest aggregate amount of gross proceeds raised in a year since 2000. In 2015, the market for initial public offerings began to dry up. The count of US companies going public dropped by 40% (137 companies) compared to 2014, and total gross proceeds were essentially cut in half ($28.3 billion).
