ABSTRACT
The article deals with an increase in the number of initial public offerings (IPOs) in 2007. Though 2007 notched 304 venture-backed merger and acquisition exits worth $23.7 billion, the most since the bubble year of 2000, traffic slowed markedly in the fourth quarter. According to a survey by Thomson Financial and the National Venture Capital Association, the Boston and San Jose, California, areas led the fourth quarter IPO charge with four, followed by Chicago and Minnesota's Twin Cities with three each.
