Global IPO proceeds fall 13 percent in first half
9. Juli 2015
US IPO activity began to pick up steam in the second quarter of 2015 after a slow first quarter. For 2Q US markets saw 66 deals with $13.7b in proceeds this quarter, an 88.6% increase in deals and 125% increase in capital raised over Q1, according to the quarterly EY Global IPO Trends: 2015 Q2.
Despite this increase, the total number of deals and proceeds in the first half of 2015 was significantly down from the first half of last year, as US listings have been unable to keep pace with 2014’s aggressive results, the busiest year since 2000. In the first six months of 2015, 101 IPOs were recorded in the US, raising proceeds of $19.7b. Compared to the first half of 2014, this was a 36% decrease in the number of deals and a 44% decrease by proceeds, from 158 deals with a value of $35.4 billion.
