Dealcast European IPOs 29 March 2018
European IPO activity year-to-date has beaten last year’s total issuance by far, with a total of EUR 11.6bn raised across 41 deals.

ECM Editor Sofia Cerqueira and senior reporter Katrien Van Hoof discuss the main trends seen in the first quarter and the challenges that lie ahead for those queuing in the IPO pipeline.
