We’re all done with IPOs on the Japanese exchanges for this year.

Some headline numbers:

  • Total number of IPOs: 188
  • 20 failed to post initial prices above the subscription price
  • 36 companies (or perhaps 37, depending on how eBASE does. The company listed on Dec 26th but has yet to trade in two days, buys outnumbering sells by approximately 30:1, and looks like the initial trades will occur at a level of PER>100) posted opening prices which translated to an initial price trailing PER >100
  • Highest initial price PER was Drecom (Feb 9th), at 953.94
  • 8 companies had initial price trailing PER<10, and a further 2 companies were loss-making for the most recent financial reporting period

More stats when I’ve had a chance to get the data into Excel.
