"Gomez could have gone public," said Ira Cohen, managing partner, Updata Advisors Inc., which represented Compuware Corp. (NASDAQ:CPWR) in its October acquisition of Internet analytics developer Gomez Inc. for $295 million cash. Compuware "knew that buying Gomez would be a game-changer, and they were willing to pay a price that pretty much equated with an IPO," said Cohen, who predicts the deal will be a "harbinger of things to come" in the new year as the IPO market continues to heat up. The Deal spoke with Cohen on location at the NYSE Euronext as part of our on-going video series about IPOs.
