WSE attracts largest number of IPOs in Europe in Q2


The Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) attracted more initial public offerings (IPO) than any other major stock market in Europe in the second quarter of 2011, according to IPO Watch Europe, a quarterly survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers. The Warsaw bourse thus retained the top spot from Q1. In value terms the WSE moved up one place to third, only behind London and Deutsche Boerse.

A total of 55 companies floated their shares in Warsaw in Q2, up from 45 in Q1 and setting a new quarterly record. There were 13 IPOs on the main market during the three months to June, and 42 on NewConnect.

The aggregate value of these 55 IPOs was €600m, a five-fold increase over the preceding quarter. The European IPO market as a whole was worth €13.4bn in Q2, up sharply from less than €3bn.

The largest IPO on the WSE in the second quarter was that of Open Finance, a financial advisory firm, which was worth €111m.
