Dealogic league table roundup, Sep 21

Goldman Sachs leads the equity capital markets league tables, while HSBC continues to lead the debt capital markets tables.

Equity capital markets
Activity in the equity capital markets totalled $1.3 billion through 14 issues during the past week, up slightly from the $1.2 billion raised during the previous week and bringing total year-to-date volume to $107.9 billion, down 16% on the $128.9 billion raised in the same 2011 period.

The biggest deal of the week was a $398 million follow-on for Longfor Properties through bookrunners Citi and Goldman Sachs in what was the fourth-biggest ECM transaction so far this year in the Asia (ex Japan) real estate industry.

Regional real estate ECM volume stands at $5.5 billion in 2012 year-to-date, down 30% on the $7.9 billion recorded in the comparable 2011 period.

Five equity-linked deals were priced this week for a total of $543 million, the biggest number of deals since the week of June 25 when five deals ($205 million) were completed. The second largest deal of the week was a $160 million equity-linked deal for Ctrip.com International through sole bookrunner J.P. Morgan.

Goldman Sachs has regained its lead in the league table ranking with $7.8 billion in 2012 year-to-date, followed closely by UBS and Citi.

Debt capital markets
Six issuers tapped the Asian G3 debt capital markets this week for $2.9 billion, down from the bumper $6.8 billion recorded during the same period last week.

The biggest deal of the week was a $1.2 billion trade for Bangkok Bank through sole bookrunner Morgan Stanley, pushing Southeast Asian G3 DCM volume to $37.7 billion in 2012 year-to-date, almost double the $19.5 billion raised in the same 2011 period.

The top three banks in the league table remain unchanged with HSBC taking $14.2 billion, followed by J.P. Morgan and Citi.
