Equity Capital Markets
Total issuance in the equity capital markets this week hit $2.1 billion from 15 deals. Goldman Sachs continues to reign supreme at the top of the league table rankings with almost $7 billion raised from 30 issues and is followed by Citigroup and Morgan Stanley.
A $1.9 billion fully marketed follow on for South Korea's Hynix Semiconductor provided the bulk of the week's issuance and was led by Citigroup, Credit Suisse First Boston, Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch, Woori Finance, Daewoo Securities and Shinhan Securities. The deal pushed Citigroup into second place in the league tables from third last week, while Merrill Lynch climbed a notch to fifth position.
