HITS AND MISSES
Minnesota IPOs of recent years have included a few big successes and others that haven't done so well. Here's how a few have turned out:
Buffalo Wild Wings shares have more than tripled since the sports-themed chain went public in 2003.
AGA Medical raised $199.4 million in 2009 in Minnesota's largest IPO of the past decade. St. Jude Medical bought the device company last year for $20.80 a share, 43 percent above the IPO price.
Kips Bay Medical raised $16.5 million in February. Shares of the medical device company started at $8 but closed Friday at $3.68.
Restore Medical went public in 2006 at $8 a share. Medtronic bought the device company in 2008 for $1.60 a share, one-fifth of the IPO price.
