November Was the Biggest Month for IPOs Since June 2001

The robust stock markets in 2006 have pushed the amount of money raised in IPOs to $40.1 billion so far this year, 4% above the $38.6 billion in all of 2005, accorind to Dealogic data, reports AP. With $8 billion of deals in one month, November  was the biggest for IPOs since June, 2001, according to data provided by Dealogic. It also was the best November since 1999.

However, in terms of number of IPOs, there have been 172 IPOs so far in 2006 on the Nasdaq Stock Market and New York Stock Exchange, compared to 199 at the same point last year, according to Dealogic.   

More "trends by the numbers" on possible return to IPO boom:

  • 11 new IPO deals scheduled for December
  • 130 IPO deals filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission worth approximately $18.2 billion
  • The NYSE Big Board has signed up 58 IPOs worth $26.9 billion this year, while the Nasdaq had 114 worth $14 billion, according to Dealogic

On the down side, companies from outside the U.S. are actually becoming more hesitant about listing in this country because of a strict regulatory environment that makes compliance more expensive.
