You've probably read a lot in the paper about smaller companies are really waiting longer and thinking hard about going public just because the regulatory costs are prodigious here, and the ongoing costs of things like complying with Sarbanes-Oxley is really significant, so it's kind of changed the breakover point at which it makes sense for a company.
