Last December, we released our prediction on the Tech IPO Pipeline – a list of those companies which might be on the road towards an eventual IPO – our first-ever predictive intelligence effort as part of our market research offering, CB Insider. When we revisited the list four months later, we found that seven of the companies had already exited for an aggregate value of more than $2.56B. Now only a little more than a month later, seven more companies on the list have exited via IPO or M&A bringing the total value of exits for companies on the list to $5.4 billion.
And in addition to these 14 exits, another 66 of the initial 472 companies we’d identified have gone on to raise additional financing. Since December, these 66 firms have raked in an additional $2.9 billion in financing. And this is in less than a half year since our predictions were made.
Summary of our prediction results:
- 472 Tech IPO Pipeline companies identified in December 2012
- 17% have exited or raised additional financing since the list was issued (less than 6 months ago)
- 14 have exited in for an aggregate value of $5.4 billion
- 66 of the companies have raised additional financing totaling $2.9 billion
All fourteen companies on the initial IPO Pipeline list that have exited are listed below:
- Tumblr acquired by Yahoo (NY’s largest VC exit ever)
- Row 44 acquired by Global Eagle Acquisition Corporation
