The current state of the global IPO market.
In 2014, the global initial public offering (IPO) market recorded its strongest performance since 2010, with a total of 1,234 deals raising 263 billion dollars globally. The US market was the single best-performer, registering its best year since the record-setting 2000 that capped the dotcom bubble. Whether the IPO market can sustain its strong performance in 2015 is uncertain and depends on interest rate expectations and concerns over the impact of oil price gyrations on the energy sector.
