After a long drought, could there really be 7 Austin IPOs this year?  (which doesn’t even include companies that IPOed with significant Austin operations, like Demand Media)

The company is the seventh in Austin to file an IPO this year. Freescale Semiconductor Inc. moved forward with its sale in May, raising a less than hoped for $783 million. Also last month, WhiteGlove House Call Health Inc. registered to complete a $31.6 million IPO, but that deal has yet to close. Austin-based VOC Energy Trust raised about $217.7 million, before expenses, with its initial public offering on May 10. Also, San Marcos-based Thermon officially went public on May 5 with expectations to raise about $120 million.

Earlier this year, HomeAway Inc. registered to complete a $230 million IPO and Newgistics Inc. filed for a $86.3 million offering.

Can’t remember ever seeing so many maturing companies in Austin (including OtherInbox, which just hit a million users, Bazaarvoice, Vast, and others).  Oh, and HomeAway appears to be pricing at $24 or so
