New listing performance/database

Friday, Feb 12 2016 by

Is anyone aware of a source for new listings onto the LSE which gives dates/tickers etc going back over the years and is being updated going forward? Or maybe a study which compares the performance of new listings versus the wider market?

Given the amount of tat that private equity (amongst others!) seems to be unloading onto the market which then issue profit warnings would be interesting to see what the stats say about the attractiveness of IPO's in general.

Not sure this is exactly what you are after, but please see attached a link to the latest E&Y UK IPO report for 2015. I think you should be able to get recent years' reports through the same link.$FILE/EY-IPO-Eye-Q4-2015.pdf

If someone wants to look at it themselves, the LSE has raw data (going back to1995):

Generally, overpriced IPOs from PE will be balanced by IPOs by (somewhat) distressed sellers (larger groups raising cash, some government privatisations, or even PE hitting fund liquidation deadlines or other cash calls), so there may not be a clear effect from simply looking at all IPOs bunched together.
