HCA Files for $4.6 Billion IPO

Hope springs eternal: after an ugly week for IPOs, where four companies postponed their offerings (Madison Square Capital, Ryerson Holding, Americold, Smile Brands), hospital operator HCA filed for a $4.6 billion IPO, far and away the biggest deal of the year.

In fact, at that level, it could be the 5th or 6th biggest U.S. IPO in history — according to IPO firm Renaissance Capital.

HCA was taken private in 2006 (for $21 billion) by a consortium led by KKR.
