Ipreo IPO Brief: February 2014

Ipreo IPO Brief: February 2014

The new issuance market set a blistering pace in February with 20 IPOs pricing for total proceeds of $1.9B, substantially higher than the eight debuts that raised $848.7M in the comparable period last year. The Healthcare sector continues to dominate with 20 IPOs generating $1.4B YTD, 14 of which priced in February alone. Meanwhile, Financials and Energy sit atop the leaderboard in terms of proceeds raised with $2.8B and $2.3B, respectively, but have only seen a combined nine IPOs price so far this year. Elsewhere, the US-Based 25 Index followed January’s lead and again finished well ahead of the broader markets in February, closing the month with a 49% gain compared to the S&P’s 5% return.
