In brief

Recent strength in the IPO market has seen a number of issuers come to market over the past 12 months.

Partners and Co-Heads of the Allens Equity Capital Markets Practice Julian Donnan and Robert Pick recently convened a roundtable to discuss the latest developments in ECM. Equity dealmakers from UBS, Credit Suisse, Citi, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Macquarie and Deutsche Bank examined issues such as the buoyancy of the Australian IPO market, the healthy pipeline for IPOs, placements and block trades. A summary of the discussion was published in FinanceAsia's September 2014 issue.

Julian and Robert also spoke with BRR Media about the drivers of demand for IPOs in the current market, whether government privatisations are likely to have an impact on the market and other factors influencing ECM activity.
