Biggest technology IPOs 2019 so far
This year is shaping up to be a big one for technology IPOs. Lyft and Pinterest have already gone public, and Uber, Slack, and Airbnb are expected to join them soon.
In 2018, Renaissance Capital tracked 190 companies going public in 2018, up 19 percent from the year before, according to MarketWatch, led by the likes of Sonos, Spotify and Dropbox and a raft of unicorns from Utah, hitting the public markets.
The market took a dip at the end of the year, however, putting the 2019 IPO market on "uncertain footing," according to Renaissance. However, the investment bank added that a host of unicorns are likely to float, meaning it "could still be a big year for proceeds if not for deal count." This prediction is supported by CB Insights, which estimates that "if Uber, Airbnb, Pinterest, and Slack were to go public at their rumoured IPO valuations, they would all rank among the 10 largest venture-backed tech IPOs since 2012."
Here are the biggest technology IPOs of 2019 so far.
