Gina Mendoza * Task 3 * Due: October 1, 2012 * What Companies have Recently Filed Initial Public Offerings? 1. Explain how you found the one or two companies that interested you. Step 1: I followed the link you provided. www.ipocentral.com Step 2: I browsed some of the subcategories that Hoovers’ IPO Central provided. [For Example: IPO Pipeline, IPO Filing, IPO Performance, IPO Scorecard, Biggest First Days, Winners and Losers.] Step 3: I then selected the IPO Calendar that listed all of the up and coming public offerings. Here I selected my companies: GlobeImmune, Inc. and FleetMatics Group Limited. The reason I chose these companies was because in the past I have worked directly with FleetMatics and GlobeImmune, Inc.
