View this page in: Русский

The 2012 European IPO markets performed poorly in 2012 compared with 2010 and 2011, with 263 IPOs raising just €11.1bn, compared with 430 IPOs raising €26.5bn in the prior year. 69.3% of proceeds were raised in the final quarter of the year, with the first three quarters plagued by the unstable economic and political conditions in the Eurozone.

London remained the top IPO destination in Europe but suffered from the absence of any jumbo IPOs such as Glencore, with 73 IPOs raising just €5.1bn in 2012 compared with 101 IPOs raising €14.1bn in the prior year.
