WSE attracts largest number of IPOs in Europe in Q1


The Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) attracted more initial public offerings (IPO) than any other major stock market in Europe in the first quarter of the year, according to IPO Watch Europe, a quarterly survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers. In value terms the Warsaw bourse came fourth, behind London, Oslo and Deutsche Boerse.

A total of 45 companies floated their shares in Warsaw in Q1, up from 40 in Q4 2010 and the highest quarterly figure in the WSE’s history (in Q1 2010 there were 15 debuts). There were seven IPOs on the main market during the three months to the end of March, and 38 on NewConnect.

The aggregate value of these 45 IPOs was €121m, an almost four-fold increase from a year earlier, but down from €569m in Q4 2010 (the latter figure was boosted by the IPO of the WSE itself).
