The 2013 IPO Outlook Is Positive

2013 IPO OutlookComing off a huge year for Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) in 2012, the 2013 IPO outlook is looking even stronger.  The number of technology IPOs in 2013 is expected to be at least fifteen percent higher in 2013 than it was in 2012.  There are numerous reasons for the rosy 2013 IPO outlook, including:  the Jump-Start Our Business Start-Ups (JOBS) Act, an improving economy, and the maturing of many Internet 2.0 companies that are now ready to sell stock to the public via IPOs.


The 2013 IPO Outlook | Some Companies To Keep An Eye On

The following are some of the top potential 2013 IPOs in the 2013 IPO outlook:

Twitter – Twitter is a social networking company that is known for its trademark “tweets”, which are short text messages to followers.  Twitter’s chairman, Jack Dorsey, said in the fall of 2012 that the company is preparing to go public via an IPO.  Whether or not the Twitter IPO happens in 2013 remains to be seen, but if it does happen, it will be one of the biggest IPOs of 2013.

Dropbox – Dropbox is an online file storage and sharing company that allows user to store and share files in the cloud.  With a growing user base and growing demand for their file storage and sharing services, Dropbox will be an IPO to watch for in 2013.

Gilt Groupe – Gilt Groupe offers what is known as “flash sales” through their Internet portal, which are deeply discounted sales that are only available temporarily.  The company has been growing quickly, but has struggled lately to expand its business beyond its traditional high-end fashion clothing and luxury goods lines.

LivingSocial – LivingSocial is the second largest “daily deals” site on the Internet, behind industry leading Groupon.  With narrowing losses and questions regarding whether LivingSocial has sufficient capital to reach the point of profitability, an IPO in 2013 seems pretty likely; however, the daily deals concept is not what it used to be, and therefore a LivingSocial IPO is not likely to garner too much excitement.

Zendesk – Zendesk provides computer helpdesk services on-demand.  With growing revenues and the need for business expansion funds, a Zendesk IPO is expected towards the end of 2013.

Box – Box offers cloud computing services that allow employees within an organization to collaborate on work projects and share files in the cloud.  During 2012, Box hired upper-level management that have experience with running public companies, a move that market observers see as a prelude to undergoing an IPO in 2013.

There is no guarantee that any of the above IPOs will occur during 2013; however, these are some of the more high profile IPO prospects on the 2013 IPO outlook calendar.
