Dealogic league table roundup, May 20

It was a subdued week in the capital markets last week.

Equity Capital Markets

A relatively subdued $688 million was raised Monday through Thursday last week from a total of eight issues. Hong Kong was closed for a public holiday on Friday, which means any deal activity in the region on that day will be added to this week's tally.

The league table rankings remain static, with Goldman Sachs in the lead on $5.4 billion, followed by UBS on $4.9 billion and J.P. Morgan on $4.5 billion.

Chinese A-share issuance accounted for half the deal activity and 89% of the volume during the week -- led by Rainbow Department Store's $294 million IPO via China Merchants Securities. The domestic house sits outside the top 10 in the league tables.

Deals scheduled to price next week include a $270 million A-share rights issue for Wolong Electric Group via bookrunner Haitong Securities.


Debt Capital Markets

The debt capital markets saw two trades totalling $230 million last week. The league table rankings remain unchanged with Deutsche Bank, Citi and Barclays Capital leading the field with $3.4 billion, $2.7 billion and $2.6 billion, respectively.

A $200 million bond for Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power was the biggest deal of the week and it was led by Daewoo Securities and Samsung Securities.
