The Tech IPOs Keep Coming

But don't expect the same kind of action we saw in last week’s tech deals


This week, two tech IPOs are expected to hit the market. No doubt, the space has been hot. Last week the public offering of Splunk (NASDAQ:SPLK) doubled, and there were strong performances by Infoblox (NYSE:BLOX ) and Proofpoint (NASDAQ:PFPT).

Do not expect the same kind of action from this week’s tech deals.

Here’s a look:

Acquity Group (NYSE:AQ)

Based in Hong Kong, the company provides consulting services for e-commerce and online marketing. Clients include Allstate Insurance (NYSE:ALL), Discover (NYSE:DFS), Shimano and Tommy Bahama.
