No companies went public last week, mainly because of Hurricane Sandy and the plunge in the markets. But this week, deal activity should get back on track. Four IPOs plan to hit the market:
1. Ruckus Wireless (NYSE:RKUS): The company is a provider of carrier-class WiFi services and sells across a diverse set of sectors, such as in hospitality, education, healthcare, warehousing and logistics.
During the first nine months of 2012, revenues spiked by 93% to $152.5 million, and net income came to $29.8 million. Ruckus is certainly benefiting from the megatrends in smartphones and tablets.
2. Radius Health (NASDAQ:RDUS): The company is developing a drug to treat osteoporosis. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, about 10 million Americans suffer from the disease.
