February was a strong month for F-1 filings, with law firms Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and Davis Polk & Wardwell ringing their bells with the month’s largest IPO, iQiyi, Inc., a $1.5B offer amount. Latham & Watkins came in second with Spotify’s direct listing on the NYSE for a $1B offer amount.

Like an S-1, a form F-1 must be filed with the SEC by foreign private issuers before they can make an IPO or other first-time security offering in the United States.
