Abstract

Intel (INTC) went public in February 1971 with an IPO that raised $8M (million) supported by an underwriting group of 63 firms, of which fewer than 10 still exist. In March 1986, Microsoft (MSFT) went public with an offering of $58M with 116 underwriters, of which only about one quarter remain in operation in a similar line of business. Apple, Cisco, FedEx, Genentech, Starbucks, and many other firms are examples of small companies that raised growth capital outside of Regulation D via relatively small IPOs that helped them grow to become industry leaders
