It's the mega year for megatech IPOs.
The messaging platform has yet to be released on Friday, and Uber estimates that it is massively offering the same day. Earlier in April, LIFT, Pinterest and Zoom announced, and AirBnB and Palantir are expected to debut later this year. According to the Renaissance Capital, it could be a record year for IPOs in general, potentially even surpassing the dot-com boom years. "We think it is possible for 2019 to prove to be a record year for capital raised in the IPO market by issuing over $ 100 billion, which exceeds the amounts collected in 1999 and 2000," said Ketlin Smith, director of the Renaissance. Below, we looked at the ten largest American IPO of all time, and how they passed after the public went. Interestingly, only one of the offers this year is scheduled to make the top ten (can guess who?)
Alibaba, $ 25 billion
This Chinese tech giant splashed on the American IPO scene in 2014, choosing the US rather than the stock market in Hong Kong at a time when it did not allow a dual-class offer (a structure that gives prominent control to founders and executives). Shares increased by 190 percent of their IPO to valued at $ 484 billion. However, China's stagnation has some affected investors.
Visa, $ 19.7 billion
This IPO came only a few days after the Bear Stearns collapse, but investors were still billed by Visa. The credit card company set a record in March 2008 with an increase of 19.7 billion dollars. Concerned about the scattered credit bubble, investors liked that Visa did not directly bear consumer debt at the time of increased losses. Visa continued to be a winner for investors, returning 1,363% of its debut.
General Motors, $ 18.1 billion
The name behind one of the biggest bankruptcies in the United States has also been linked to one of the largest IPOs in the United States. General Motors filed a request to collect $ 18 billion roughly a year after the government agreed to fire the company, as it was subject to Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Although GM is one of reviving and rejuvenating, he struck a few shots with a scandal with an ignition switch associated with 124 deaths and 275 injuries. Shares grew by 18% of IPO.
Enel SpA, $ 17.4 billion
An Italian electricity company, Enel, went public in September 1999 as part of a privatization program by the country's government. The IPO came to a measure to reduce the costs of the then CEO Franco Tato. About 15,000 people were scaled down by staff between 1996 and 1999, while operating costs fell by 18% Wall Street Journal. Stocks, though no longer traded in the United States due to the low volume of trading.
Facebook, $ 16 billion
This IPO in May 2012 was known for its first business problems. Nasdaq delays and glitches led to some traders who receive shares at higher prices than ordered; The action, with the help of its fuses, just barely managed to stay above its $ 38 price at the end of the day, closing at $ 38.23. In 2012, the IPO was estimated at about $ 81.2 billion. Since then, the company has continued to add users and Wow Wall Street with earnings reports even when dealing with privacy and privacy issues. Since then, the stock has risen by 408.6 percent, for now a market capitalization of 547 billion dollars.
Deutsche Telekom, $ 13.1 billion
Mega European IPO, the German giant Telecom was privatized, and was then listed on the stock exchanges in Frankfurt, Tokyo and the United States in 1996. At that time, the plan was to use the means of expanding the international markets. However, the company no longer trades on large US exchanges.
AT & T, $ 10.6 billion
The IPO of 2000 helped to release AT & T's wireless division – although eventually it would return to AT & T just a few years later. It was, at that time, the biggest IP-IP ever.
Uber Technologies, $ 9 billion
The giant uber that shares the drive appreciates its expected IPO between the range of $ 44 to $ 50, which means it has to attract about $ 9 billion. Earlier, it was speculated that Uber had sought an estimate of $ 120 billion, but the current range would set him in the field of valuation of American Express ($ 96 billion), Starbucks ($ 95 billion) and "Kostro" ($ 108 billion ) from Nvidia ($ 114 billion). The question of billions of dollars, however, is: When and how will Uber make a profit that justifies his numbers?
Kraft Foods $ 8.6 billion
Few people remember that the Oreos and Oskar Mayer weiners maker was owned by a cigarette company. After all, it's been a decade and a half, since Philip Morris, now Altiria, offered "Kraft Foods" for what was then the second largest IPO in the country. Subsequently known as Kraft Foods, it began trading Nasdaq as "KFT" in 2001, and the Altria-based stock dropped from its shareholders in 2003. The company was estimated at around $ 53.8 billion at that time, giving investors return from 146.6% of its IPO nearly two decades earlier. It is a relatively weak share growth (compared to the S & P 500) may at least partly be attributed to consumer changes.
