Blackstone IPO Set to be one of the largest
Posted by Lisa Fairfax

Well the wait is over.  The Blackstone Group LP is set for its IPO today, raising $4.13 billion dollars, the largest US IPO in some five years.  It is also the 6th largest US IPO in history, which puts it behind AT&T, Kraft, UPS, CIT Group and Conoco.  Interestingly, four of the top five largest US IPOs (excluding UPS) were all the result of spin-offs, showing that there is much money to be made in break-ups.  And of course, none of these IPOs managed to top the largest IPO in history--that honor goes to the Industrial & Commercial Bank of China, which raised $19 billion in its IPO last year.
