Ipreo Reviews IPO Market Characteristics For Summer 2016

Ipreo Reviews IPO Market Characteristics For Summer 2016 - FHB, LN

According to the market intelligence firm, Ipreo, the months of June through August generated $4.0 billion in proceeds from 23 deals year-to-date. Ipreo added that this figure is "well below" the $11.3 billion in proceeds that were generated from 54 deals in Summer 2015 and $18.7 billion from the 70 deals generated in Summer 2014.

However, Ipreo noted that Summer 2016's figure was larger than Summer 2012 as the 22 deals combined for just $3.1 billion in proceeds.

The largest IPOs of this summer, according to Ipreo's data, include Line Corp (ADR) LN 1.51% ($722.5 million) which also doubled as the largest tech IPO since October 2015. Patheon NV PTHN 0.98% ($625.0 million) was the largest healthcare-related IPO since March of 2015, and First Hawaiian Inc FHB 0.29% ($557.8 million), which was also the largest financial IPO since June 2015.
