    Ferrari prances towards IPO

    IFR 2057 1 November to 7 November 2014

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles set the market aflutter last week – not with its plans to recapitalise through equity and equity-linked issues totalling several billion dollars in the next two months, but with the IPO of just 10% of Ferrari.

    Stress test triggers more equity

    IFR 2057 1 November to 7 November 2014

    If equity markets had been less welcoming of recapitalisation deals earlier this year, the results of the ECB’s recent assessment of European banking would have been dramatically different.

    Volatility puts the brakes on IPOs

    IFR 2055 18 October to 24 October 2014

    The year might already be over for ECM bankers – in mid-October. Last week’s broad-based and dramatic corrections in asset prices saw IPOs postponed or cut in size across the world and if markets don’t quickly find stability, the considerable pipeline of deals scheduled for the rest of the year may prove impossible to bring to market.
