For the second consecutive year, the NYSE raised more IPO proceeds than any other major exchange, anywhere in the world. In 2008, the NYSE raised $26 billion in IPO proceeds, representing 21% of IPO capital raised on a global basis. Although both U.S. and global IPO activity fell sharply from last year due to challenging market conditions, NYSE Euronext raised the most IPO proceeds worldwide for the 5th consecutive year. In 2008, NYSE Euronext raised approximately $45 billion, followed by Hong Kong which raised $12 billion.
NYSE Euronext listed some of the largest, most recognized companies in 2008. This included the largest U.S. IPO in history, Visa (NYSE: V), which raised $17.86 billion/€11.5 billion, and the second largest European IPO for the year, EDP Renováveis (NYSE Euronext: EDPR), which raised $2.42 billion/€1.566 billion. Other significant IPOs in 2008 included American Water Works (NYSE: AWK), which raised $1.4 billion and Intrepid Potash (NYSE: IPI), which raised $1.1 billion. Both listed on the NYSE.
