Is There a Backlog in the IPO Market?

During the recession, IPOs were a rarity.

Now, with a resuscitated economy to propel them, IPOs are flooding the once-quiet market. Although not all of the companies that are anticipated to go public will be greeted with jubilation (read: GroupOn), many of the hopefuls-in-waiting are poised to surge onto the scene.

Still, as Tom Johansmeyer of explains, there’s a heavy backlog being created. As of mid-October, there are many companies patiently waiting for their filings to be cleared.

For more on the backlog currently being experienced with the IPO market, watch full video featuring Johansmeyer.
