IPO Monitor to Publish Year-End Review on Jan. 2

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 31, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- IPO Monitor (www.ipomonitor.com), the nation's most followed site for information surrounding the initial public offering marketplace, is proud to announce that on Jan. 2, 2002 it will release its highly anticipated report chronicling the events of 2001. The review, to be written by Jeffrey R. Hirschkorn, one of the Street's most visible professionals in the marketplace, will be full of trends and analysis for one to digest.

"Our 2001 Year-in-Review promises to be intriguing and full of informative data, including a comprehensive report on the underwriting community," said Jeff Stacey, the firm's Managing Director. "Most people noticed that during the year the overall marketplace experienced significant turbulence as we shifted from a bullish tone to a bearish tone on Wall Street."

The investing public would have done much better by investing in newly public companies against firm's already trading on the Street. By Dec. 28, the average return for an IPO [from offering price] stood at 11.1% while components on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite were well below that mark despite making headway since the market's reached a virtual bottom on Sept. 21.

Components to the IPO Monitor Annual Report include:

 -- Chronological Report on Deal Flow
 -- Detailed Offering Scorecard
 -- Historical View of Prior Calendar Year's
 -- Tracking of Mega-Deals
