During the first half of 2013, NYSE Euronext markets in the U.S. and Europe raised $28.5 billion in total global proceeds in 72 initial public offerings (IPOs) and exceeded the combined proceeds raised on the next four world markets (
see accompanying chart/facts).
In the U.S., capital raised from IPOs listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) was four-times more than any other U.S. marketplace, and the NYSE achieved a record 64% of all new technology offerings from 14 listings that accounted for 58% of capital raised in the sector. Also in the first half of 2013, NYSE Euronext raised $106 billion in follow-on transactions, more than the next six world markets combined. There were a total of $168 billion in announced or completed transfers to our market, including Oracle and Perrigo, two top 100 NASDAQ companies. In Europe, NYSE Euronext added 23 new listings with approximately €926 million ($1.2 billion) in proceeds from seven IPOs and launched EnterNext®, its innovative marketplace for SMEs.
“A relatively stable macroeconomic environment and low volatility resulted in a robust capital market for the first half of 2013,” said Scott Cutler, EVP and Head of Global Listings at NYSE Euronext. “The NYSE continued to lead all exchanges globally in capital raising for companies of all sizes and in all sectors. We saw strong deal flow from international issuers looking to the U.S. as a destination for capital raising, and began to see the market develop again on our European venues. We are particularly pleased to have listed a majority of the technology IPOs that came to market, and to have announced the transfer of Oracle to the NYSE. If there was ever a question about our prowess in technology, this should put those questions to rest.”
