The volume of global and specifically European IPO activity over the last two years has bounced back from the lull experienced across the globe in 2012, and 2014 was a notably strong year. However, the IPO market dropped off again in 2015 which saw $175 billion raised through IPOs from 744 issuances, well below the level seen in 2010, when there was a five-year high of $257 billion raised and 896 issuances completed. In the first part of this two-part whitepaper series by Fairvue Partners, we assess the European IPO market within a global context since 2010, addressing the questions of deal size, investor appetite across sectors, seasonality trends, regional dynamics, and post-listing share price performance.
