SWEDEN’S IPO BOOM


Stockholm tops 2017 with 115 IPOs, ahead of London


Stockholm is able to compete, and even beat, London, as well as Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, and Madrid.


Stockholm tops 2017 with 115 IPOs, ahead of London, England, where 95 companies went public (across three separate exchanges).

Of 115 companies going public 2017 in Stockholm, 44 were either VC- or PE-backed. That supported the large 2017 number of companies floating in one year. With excellent market conditions the Nordic PE firms have increasingly opted for exits letting the shares float on the market.

On the 21 of June 2017, the Nasdaq in Stockholm broke a European record by admitting five company' shares to float in a single day. How does the Swedish equity marketplaces compare to its peers in Europe?

Sweden by comparison does very well among the main stock exchanges in Europe and is bigger than Frankurt. Stockholm is the leading marketplace for small-cap and does provide great liquidity as well as access to capital.
