Biotech IPOs have been red hot in the past year. In fact it is the hottest sector in the IPO industry. We've seen more than 30 IPOs so far and they've raised more than $2.5 B in capital. That's the greatest amount of activity since way back in 2000 (even bigger than storied 1991 and 1996 in terms of numbers of offerings).
Healthcare IPOs have been the best performing IPO sector of 2013, up 64% on average year to date following their offerings, besting all other sectors according to Renaissance Capital. See graphic.
