Survey: Tech Sector Expects High Growth, Weighs IPOs

SAN FRANCISCO Feb. 22, 2011 San Francisco-Bay Area


Andy Armanino

Other major findings from the survey include:

  • More than half of the technology companies surveyed have increased their cash reserves over the past year and plan to deploy that capital into hiring and sales & marketing.
  • Despite a challenging IPO market over the past several years, our findings show 20 percent of technology companies anticipate an IPO exit within the next three years.
  • Technology companies that are considering an IPO said the biggest challenges to going public are a lack of resources, technical expertise and the inability to balance day-to-day job requirements with IPO preparations.

2011 CFO Evolution Benchmark Survey Report

The IPO market has been challenging, particularly for smaller companies, for the past several years…. Reporting requirements have increased the costs of going public … and major brokerage firms have been focused on large company stocks due to cuts in analyst research. … These forces have combined to make it more difficult for small-cap companies to attract large investors. … But on the other hand, the current slow but steady recovery, combined with decreased volatility in the capital markets and technology IPO successes in the second half of 2010 all indicate a healthier IPO environment in 2011.
