About eight years ago, an Eastern University published an IPO study. The study reviewed one hundred attempts to do an IPO. It compared S-18 filings. The S-18 was the earlier version of the SB-2 filing. The study concluded that less than half the companies that started the IPO process were funded. It showed average costs for the IPO process to be about US$750,000.
I'm interested in a current IPO study. I doubt that the SB-2 form has cut costs. While there are more IPOs today, the interest in doing IPOs is greater. So far, I haven't found a recent study.
However, I've found a useful academic website for IPO studies. The URL is [http://linux.agsm.ucla.edu/ipo/iporefs.html] Many academic studies have little relevance to the operation of the Market. University writers carefully document their works. If you use their references, you can often find data on the topic you are researching. Bookmark the URL. It could prove useful.
Another IPO URL website: [http://linux.anderson.ucla.edu/ipo/] This website is hosted by the Anderson Graduate School of Management at UCLA.. It's worth bookmarking.
