Dealogic League Table Round-up February 26

The G3 bond markets spring back to life this week.

Equity Capital Markets

A total of $2.2 billion has been raised in the equity capital markets in Asia (ex Japan) through 16 deals so far this week, up slightly on the $1.9 billion raised in the same period last week and brings total issuance in the region to $37.4 billion in 2016 so far, up 15% year-on-year.

Volume, this week, was bolstered by two accelerated offerings* for a combined total of $1.2 billion. The larger of the two is NTPC’s $732 million accelerated offering* through bookrunners State Bank of India, ICIC Bank, Edelweiss Financial Services and Deutsche Bank. The Ministry of Power was the selling shareholder. This deal is also the largest Indian ECM transaction since India Oil Corp’s $1.4bn transaction in August 2015.

The other deal is Samsung C&T Group’s $460 million accelerated offering through bookrunners Citi and Credit Suisse. The deal is the second biggest South Korean ECM transaction this year so far behind Samsung Engineering’s $1.1 billion deal in mid-February and pushes the nation’s ECM volume to $3.2 billion in 2016 YTD, more than double the $1.5 billion raised in the comparable period last year.

Accelerated offerings volume in the region has reached $2.4 billion far this year, down significantly from $11.2 billion raised in the same period last year and the lowest level for the period since 2010 ($1.9 billion).

The top three banks in the league table ranking remain the same with GF Securities leading with $4.8 billion in 2016 YTD, while CITIC Securities and Guosen Securities follow with $2.4 billion and $2.3 billion, respectively.
