A Financial Times Service
China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight
22 March 2012

Global equity issuance volumes by Chinese companies are down significantly relative to early 2011, marking a brisk end to the initial public offering (IPO) bonanza we have seen in the past few years. Low valuations in both the Hong Kong and Chinese stock markets have forced mainland companies to delay their IPO plans or turn to the debt capital markets, where financing is cheaper. As such, we expect fewer Chinese companies to tap the equity markets this year.
