Sponsors shine in mucky 2011 global market
It might have been a year to forget for many but there was at least one bright spot to emerge from the bundle of stats recording, or lamenting, equity capital markets activity in 2011. Global financial sponsor deals worth $92.9bn were completed during the year, up 20% on 2010 and providing the highest proportion of the total market on record, according to Dealogic.
In Europe that was most evident through secondary sell-downs. Sponsors offloaded $11.9bn of stock during the year the highest on record and up 61% on 2010, said the leading authority on capital markets data in its preliminary review of the year.
Total EMEA accelerated offering volume was $46.3bn
