This database is comprised of all emerging growth initial public offerings (IPOs) on American stock exchanges and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) from January 1990 through December 2010. The emerging growth status of firms were established through examination of the prospectus, specifically in the the prospectus summary where the firm describes its activities, history, and business. The data has been constructed directly from registration statements and prospectuses filed with the SEC and contains variables that pertain to the firm going public and the offering itself. Documents used to collect this data were found on the SEC's Electronic Data, Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval (EDGAR) Web site. Information regarding IPO registration statements and prospectuses filed from January 1990 through May 1996 were obtained from the Stanford Graduate School Library in either PDF of TIFF format.
