2006 Was (Kinda) Record Year Globally for IPOs

Some useful new data is out from E&Y on global IPO activity in 2006. In a nutshell, the just-completed year was the biggest ever for global IPOs, at least by dollars generated. Granted, if you net out the $22-billion ICBC IPO then 2000 ends up just ahead of 2006, but it’s still been a remarkable IPO recovery.
