10 IPOs on Tap for This Week

by Tom Taulli | February 6, 2012 10:47 am

IPO performance was mixed  last week. In fact, there were three deals that had to be postponed (one was because a company agreed to be acquired).

Here’s a rundown of the offerings:

company ticker return (%)
Cempra CEMP 0
AVG Technologies AVG -18.2
Greenway GWAY 32.3
Matador Resources MTDR 0
U.S. Silica SLCA -5.2

Despite the volatility, the average return was still nearly 2%, which shows how one deal can make up for the duds!

For this week, 10 companies plan to hit the markets:
