After a long, long drought, Greater Cincinnati finally got back into the IPO game in 2012. Vantiv, the Symmes Township-based electronic payment processor, in March completed its initial public offering, selling $575 million in stock. Vantiv itself sold $500 million in the offering, while existing shareholders sold the rest in the over-allotment for underwriters to fill extra orders.
