      This article updates our “Initial Public Offerings,” in the Summer 1988 Journal of Applied Corporate Finance. It draws heavily on “Initial Public Offerings” by Roger G. Ibbotson and Jay R. Ritter in North-Holland Handbooks of Management Science: Finance and “Going Public,” by Kathleen Weiss Hanley and Jay R. Ritter, in The New Palgrave Dictionary of Money and Finance. We thank Prof. Hanley for permission to draw on material from this related work.
