CORRECTING and REPLACING New York Stock Exchange Leads in Global Capital Raising in First Half of 2014; Continues to Support Innovation and Job Creation

First paragraph, second sentence of release should read: With $20.7 billion in total proceeds raised from 68 initial public offerings (IPOs), the NYSE is set to outpace 2013 in total IPO proceeds. (instead of: With $20.7 billion in total proceeds raised from 89 initial public offerings (IPOs), the NYSE is set to outpace 2013 in total IPO proceeds.)

The corrected release reads:

NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE LEADS IN GLOBAL CAPITAL RAISING IN FIRST HALF OF 2014; CONTINUES TO SUPPORT INNOVATION AND JOB CREATION

  • Global Leader in Capital Raising with $83B in Proceeds from IPOs and Follow-Ons, More Than Any Other Exchange
  • NYSE Leads in Total New Listings with 203 New U.S. Listings
  • Remains Top Destination for Technology with 58% of All U.S. Tech IPOs

The New York Stock Exchange, part of the Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE) global network of exchanges, remained the global leader in capital raising in the first half of 2014. With $20.7 billion in total proceeds raised from 68 initial public offerings (IPOs), the NYSE is set to outpace 2013 in total IPO proceeds.

“Across the board it has been a strong first half, with notable activity from tech, financial services and energy sectors,” said EVP and Head of Global Listings, Scott Cutler. “Based on the current momentum and pipeline, the IPO market is set to surpass 2013, which was a record year. In addition, our activity from non-U.S. IPOs affirms NYSE as the global center for raising capital and speaks to the strength and stability offered by the U.S. capital markets.”

More than 85% of all U.S. IPOs this year have leveraged the JOBS act – with $20.3 billion raised from JOBS Act IPOs so far this year – a reflection of how the capital markets can support emerging growth companies. The NYSE advocated for the JOBS act and continues to support policy that encourages companies to access the public markets. In addition, the NYSE remains an active participant in the current market structure dialogue aimed at reducing the complexity and fragmentation of the U.S. stock market to ensure confidence in the operation of the markets.

“The ability to access public markets through an IPO process fuels our economy, fosters innovation and drives job creation,” said NYSE President Tom Farley. “As we continue to see an increasing number of companies access capital markets to support their growth objectives, it is essential to global economic growth that a fair, transparent and efficient market structure exists to support companies of all sizes as they list and trade on our markets.”
