IPO volume on US exchanges plunged in August to just four listings, the lowest monthly figure in 2011, from 14 deals in July and 11 in the same period last year. The S&P downgrade of U.S. debt at the beginning of the month, along with continuing European debt woes, compounded seasonal weakness in the deal market. Twenty three IPOs withdrew or postponed their offerings in August, a magnitude of retreat unseen since April 2001, when 23 IPOs withdrew or postponed amid a deflating US tech bubble. On a YTD basis, however, both US-based and international-based IPO volume and proceeds continue to eclipse the year-ago figures with 2011 YTD proceeds more than twice that of the same period in 2010, helped by a string of larger PE-backed offerings earlier this year.
