The UK Private Equity IPO Report

The UK Private Equity IPO Report, published by the BVCA and in association with PwC, provides an historic analysis of private equity-backed IPOs in the UK between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2017.  It looks at a number of metrics including the use of proceeds, pricing and performance to build a picture of the IPO market and the key trends with the market.

The performance numbers are particularly revealing as they show that private equity-backed IPOs are trading on average 43.9% higher than their offer price compared to the non-private equity-backed IPOs of the same period which are trading at an average of 26.6% higher. The top 10 private equity-backed flotations between the beginning of 2009 and the end of 2017 raised 37% of the total private equity proceeds during that time, and despite a drop in the number of IPOs in recent years, it is an industry which continues to represent a significant proportion of new listings.
