Although the US government remains partially shut down, private investors seem largely unfazed. Some initially feared that the limited operations of the SEC and other government entities would derail the recent momentum in the IPO market, but Re/Max still debuted on NYSE and Twitter revealed its $1 billion IPO plan. Depending on the duration of the shutdown, however, there may be future implications for medical device makers, other industries, and SBIC-backed lending. Most eyes seem to be on the looming debt-ceiling.
