I recommend the Report "IPO Watch Europe Q1 2018" | Report | Latest report reviews IPO activity during Q1 2018. The European IPO market has seen a strong start to 2018. The value of European IPOs in Q1 2018 increased by 172% (€7.9bn) compared to Q1 2017, and the average deal size increased by 31% (€61m) over the same period. This was largely due to the mega-IPOs of Siemens Healthineers and Deutsche Bank’s DWS Group, which raised €3.7bn and €1.3bn respectively, boosting IPO values towards the end of the quarter. London remains the number one exchange in Europe by volume, although IPO proceeds are down from last year. Deutsche Börse was the top exchange by value.
