- Global IPO activity gone up 53% with 563 IPOs, proceeds 110.2 bn. US$ (+56%)
- Europe resurgent to take top spot by capital raised
- Germany IPO window wide open: IPOs raised 1 bn. €
Europe displays strength and breadth with 152 IPOs raising US$38,6bn. in first half of 2014, with a key driver being financial sponsors looking to exit investments - an increase of more than 130% in deal numbers and 350% in capital raised compared to the same period a year ago and the best since 2007. We also see IPO activity spreading out to other mainland European exchanges as the economic recovery takes hold, which is a very promising sign for the strength of the European IPO market.
The German IPO market improved further with six IPOs in total including Braas Monier, Stabilus, SLM Solutions, the Chinese JJ Auto and the Dual Listing of BUWOG in Q2 2014. Record highs in main selection indices still trending upwards, low volatility, a good macroeconomic environment and supportive monetary policy from central banks are setting a good foundation for the IPO pipeline 2014.
