The article focuses on a decline in initial public offerings (IPO) in early 2008, according to market researchers. Worldwide, 28 initial public offerings expected to raise $10.5 billion were postponed or withdrawn through January 30, 2008 versus 10 deals worth $374 million in the 2007 period. A 2006 academic study by University of Alabama professor Qin Lian found that second-round IPO valuations were 24 to 39 percent lower than those of first time IPO.
