Ipreo IPO Brief: February 2012

Ipreo IPO Brief: February 2012

After a slow start to the year, the IPO market bounced back in typical February fashion, pricing 17 IPOs for over $1.7B in proceeds. While deal count is up marginally from last February, total proceeds remain extremely deflated as y/y comparisons show a 64.5% decline from the $4.8B raised in the year-ago period. Despite falling proceeds, strong performance in the broader markets has continued to help these smaller deals perform better, with an average first-day pop of 16.0%, compared to 7.0% last year. YTD, the number of US-based IPOs is up from 2011, while international IPOs trail last year’s totals as continued turmoil in Europe and investor-skepticism of Asian IPOs keeps foreign deals at bay.
