Top Three Financial Publishing Firms Process 55% of 2016 SEC Transactions: The Vintage Group Maintains Leadership Position
Vintage takes #2 position for IPO and secondary offerings

NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 55% of Securities and Exchange Commission Forms 10-12B, 10-12G, 1-A, F-1, N-2, S-1, S-11, S-3 and S-4 that were processed in 2016, were filed by Vintage and its top two industry peers. These particular SEC forms are very complex legal documents that require top-tier expertise and immaculate attention to detail in financial publishing. Within this top-tier group, Vintage executed 20% of the total filings.

Specifically, for Form S-1 filings, which are the capital markets' most anticipated filings for IPOs and secondary offerings, Vintage ranked #2, winning, aside its top-tier peers, 32% of these coveted transactions.

"In 2016, Vintage firmly cemented our ranking in the top-tier alongside our industry peers, Donnelley Financial Solutions and Merrill Corporation," said Bradley H. Smith, Director of Marketing at Vintage, a division of PR Newswire / Cision. "Underpinning our great numbers are the domain expertise and capabilities of our Operations Teams. They truly own and deliver our 'fast turns, spot-on execution and absolute cost transparency' marketing position," closed Smith.
