Equity Capital Markets
September was the slowest month of the year in the equity capital markets with just $3.1 billion being raised from 65 deals. October is set to be a different story, however, with a whole host of large IPOs scheduled.
Starhub kicked off the proceedings on October 6 with a $271m offering un by Credit Suisse First Boston and UBS. Then on Thursday Goldman Sachs priced a $900 million IPO for Hutchison Telecommunications International.
This left the US house firmly in charge at the top of the table with $8.4 billion from 24 deals. It also opened up a gap of some $2.1 billion over nearest rival Morgan Stanley.
