The IPO market - Recent IPOs, Their
Performance and Prospects.
The IPO market can be a unique source of interest
for the seasoned investor. It is an exciting area on
the edge of the equity market. It can be a rewarding
and challenging part of the market to examine,
although undoubtedly a more risky play than other
areas. In this article I’ll take a look at the issuances of
some recent companies, how they have performed, and
delve into their overall prospects and keys to success.

Priceline buys Kayak for $1.8 Billion. Was it
Worth it? What Does the Future Hold for
Priceline and the rest of the online travel
Priceline made a splash last month with its purchase of
Kayak software. They paid $1.8 billion for the company in
stock and cash, which represented a significant
purchase premium of $250 million (16%) over its recent
market price/capitalization. In this article we’ll take a look
at why they made the purchase and its significance to
them and the overall online travel industry.
The online travel industry is an extremely large yet highly
diverse and fragmented industry. Total Online travel
sales are expected to reach $116 billion in 2012.
Priceline’s revenue is expected to be over $3.4 billion
this year. The Kayak purchase is expected to be
completed in early 2013. They can then add Kayak’s
topline revenue of $225 million to their income statement.
They are still a small part of this huge industry, despite
their high profile. Kayak has achieved revenue of just
under $10 million in 2011, so their income contribution
relative to Priceline’s net income of over $1 billion is
negligible in the short run.

The Facebook IPO Stock Price Decline
and its Aftermath. What Happened and
Is the Facebook stock price decline after the IPO
an indication of a problem? Or are price increases
or declines after an IPO random and just part of the
IPO risks an investor takes? We’ll take a look here.
On May 21st, the second day after stock issuance,
Facebook's shares nose-dived. With this have come
complaints by investors underwriters – that they were led
to the trough of false expectations. Is this in large part
just the disappointment in a random negative outcome?
Some of these investors are used to the immediate
normal positive bias outcome for most IPOs. Is it just sour
grapes here, or was there really any difference between
the Facebook deal and others?

2013. Current Trends and Implications for
What has been funded recently and what will be in 2013
The Venture Capital market has always grown in fits and
starts. Although the modern venture capital funding
market started in a meaningful way in the 1960’s, it didn’t
truly blossom until the mid 1980’s. It was then that
technology investment started to grow immensely. The
next tidal shift occurred in the mid 90’s through 2000.
This was generated by outsized investments in the
Internet, Telecom and technology industries. The
venture market grew to its highest money inflow levels
ever, reaching its peak level of money raised in 2000 of
almost $100 billion, eclipsing by many times its level over
the previous decades, even adjusted for inflation.
