This paper extends the search for small firms and exchange efficiency effects on seasoned stocks to the new issues market on a sample of placings drawn from the UKs Official List, Unlisted Securities Market and Third Market. Tests of means and regressions are undertaken to examine the relationships between sizes of new issues discounts, sizes of firms, and the exchange on which their equities are traded. Despite the observation that new issues discounts tend to be larger for equities of firms traded on exchanges with lower listing requirements, there is little evidence that the differences in discounts are affected by firm size.
