These 15 Wisconsin IPOs generated Total Audited Earnings in their 2014 most recent fiscal years of $640 mil, which was an off-the-charts 313% increase over the comparable Total Audited Earnings of $155 mil in 2013.
How big of a deal are these 15 Wisconsin IPOs since 2009? Well, really big.
These 15 IPOs, all with current stock market caps above $100 mil, have a Total Current Stock Market Capitalization of $20.5 bil.
More to the point, there are 38 Companies headquartered in Wisconsin which had their common stocks trading from the end of 2008 to the current date with current stock market caps above $100 mil.
So these 15 IPOs since 2009 added another 39% to this stack of 38 Wisconsin Companies.
The last thing Wisconsin wants is to see any curtailment in their IPOs. This is the downside risk if Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) doesn't pass. Countries like China would be able to set the international trade rules. Paul Ryan is precisely right here.
But it's not just Wisconsin. It's all US States, especially ones with a much larger number of IPOs since 2009 like California, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, Illinois and so many more.
