NYSE Euronext is leader in IPO proceeds raised for second consecutive year
For the second consecutive year, NYSE Euronext raised more proceeds from initial public offerings (IPOs) than any other global exchange group in 2012 with USD36bn in total global proceeds raised from 117 IPOs.
In the US, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NYSE MKT combined led the market with 79 IPOs and 16 transfers. In Europe, NYSE Euronext welcomed 25 new listings, with approximately EUR2.7bn (USD3.5bn) in proceeds raised.
"Issuers successfully raised more IPO capital on NYSE Euronext markets than any other exchange in 2012, despite the lingering uncertainty that weighed on the global economy," says Scott Cutler, EVP, head of global listings at NYSE Euronext. "We're especially proud to be the US leader in new technology listings and market transfers. This success spans from our superior market quality and innovative technology platform, the strength of our global brand and world-class issuer community, and our commitment to providing best in class services and unprecedented value to our customers.
"Looking to 2013, the IPO pipeline is very strong with nearly USD17bn in deals pending. We look to continue our success in attracting quality issuers to our markets, delivering unsurpassed value to these companies and their shareholders, and contributing to economic growth and well-being throughout the world."
In 2012, 52 per cent of US technology IPOs listed on NYSE, making NYSE Euronext the leader in technology IPOs in the US and new home for a new generation of tech innovators. Among the technology-based listings on NYSE in 2012 were: Exact Target, Millennial Media, Palo Alto Networks, Service Now, Workday and Yelp.
In addition to capturing high growth sectors, NYSE Euronext continued to attract listings from leading US consumer brand names in 2012, including Annie's, Burger King, Restoration Hardware Holdings and Tumi Holdings.
The company also continued to attract companies from all over the world to its US platform. Manchester United from the UK, Santander Mexico, the second largest US IPO in 2012, and Vipshop Holdings from China were some of the leading international companies that listed on NYSE this year.
In 2012, 16 companies moved or announced transfer to NYSE Group (15 to NYSE, one to NYSE MKT) with six departures from the NYSE and three from NYSE MKT.
