The IPO outlook for Brazil in 2013 appears healthy, with about 20 deals in the pipeline and those previously announced beginning pre-marketing. QGOG Constellation, the contract offshore drilling operation under the control of Brazilian conglomerate Queiroz Galvao, could launch in a few weeks and price before the first window for issuance closes, according to ECM bankers.
Brazil’s equity capital market is set to redeem itself after a dramatic drop in volumes left it lagging behind Mexico in 2012. Bankers are expecting a resurgence of jumbo offerings out of Latin America’s largest economy as well as a string of IPOs that could herald a return to the market’s heyday in 2007.
Priced to sell: Grupo Financiero Santander Mexico attracted US$22bn in demand for its US$4.1bn deal. It was the largest equity transaction in the country’s history and the third-largest IPO in the world in 2012, and was more than five times subscribed. By showing that a stellar story can sell, even in weak markets, it is IFR’s Latin America Equity Issue of the Year.
