The month that rained on ASX floats’ parade

Investor fatigue slugged the IPO market this year, with only one market debutant able to hold above its listing price.

It’s been a very soggy end to a remarkable year for ASX floats, with just one of the market debutants this month managing to hold above its listing price. And that is even after several downsized their offers and slashed offer prices ahead of the float.

For the year, more than $19 billion has been raised in the IPO market, around three times the amount raised in 2013. Of the 75 floats, around 50 have been in the small-cap space.
