Fast Track
Full Definition

It usually takes eight weeks for an IPO to complete the offering process, which begins with the filing of the registration statement with the SEC and ends with the pricing of the IPO. However, some companies are so confident that their registration statements will pass SEC review with no changes that they speed up the process by printing the preliminary prospectus immediately and beginning the road show process. These IPOs are on a fast track.
