January was a slow month for IPOs, with only five that raised a total of $892 million. This compares with ten in January 2007 that raised a total of $2.25 billion. These numbers exclude REITs and "blank check" offerings. There were seven "blank check" offerings this January that raised a total of $2.5 billion. WSJ, IPOs Slow on Broader Worries.
