Author

Physical Description
  • preprint
Notes
  • We apply a sector-based approach to companies going public in the six largest Continental European markets and Sweden during a period characterized by dramatic change. For a sample of 973 IPOs during 1988 and 1998, there is considerable underpricing which is time-varying and related to company characteristics. Much of the large .amounts of money left on the table. is due to privatization issues. For the sample as a whole, IPOs did not underperform in the long-run. Over shorter measurement horizons, we find overperformance. IPO performance is sensitive to market condition at the time of going public and IPO issuing characteristic. The favourable performance for the sample as a whole is driven by New Economy IPOs accounting for 28 percent of the sample. The pervasiveness of the outperformance of New Economy IPOs sheds light on the drivers behind the dramatic shift in industry composition of European IPOs in favor of New Economy IPOs during the Internet Bubble.
