Private Equity Loads Up the IPO Pipeline in 2014

After a big year in 2013 for IPOs -- including big names like Sea World, Twitter, and Noodles -- LBO shops are lining up some sizable exits onto public markets in 2014. This includes Seamless, as well as a spate of other offerings investors only recently came to learn about: Silver Lake-backed Virtu Financial; Zoe's Kitchen, another popular restaurant; and Sportsman's Warehouse, a retailer of outdoor goods. With markets at all-time highs, some say it's time to sell.
