The article reports that private equity's heightened interest in retail behemoths has lifted share prices across the sector in the U.S. Two of the 12 initial public offerings (IPOs) completed in the month of May 2005, were small specialty retailers. Five more specialty retailers have filed to go public since April 2005, and speculation abounds that J. Crew Group Inc. will file for a public offering later this year. Equity capital markets sources said that because of their promise for robust long-term growth, specially retailers are seen as the sector most likely to get out the door with successful IPOs aver the next few months.
