We’re into the final weeks of 2018 and looking back, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) saw a listing of 14 Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). These IPOs collectively raised a total of $722.5 million, which is significantly lower than $4.6 billion raised from 20 IPOs in full year of 2017.
Perhaps some of SGX’s initiatives, such as the widely-discussed dual-class shares, may give the local exchange a boost in 2019.
This instalment of 4 Stocks This Week examines the 4 most recent IPOs listed on the SGX and how they fared since.
