Despite the record low in IPO´s at Vienna Stock Exchange, the Austrian equity market recorded a substantial boom this year. In total, ATX was up by 27%. “The performance of ATX was really amazing. Taking dividends into account, ATX won 32% this year.” Kuras told the Austrian newspaper “Kurier” recently. The level of 2007 could not be reached, though. More than five years ago, ATX exceeded the 5,000 point mark.

The last IPO took place in 2011, when AMAG entered VSE. The low IPO level at VSE is no exemption at all. Last year, the global level of IPO´s was the lowest since 2008.
