[S. Korea’s IPO market estimated to double in size this year] 기사의 본문 이미지

The South Korean initial public offering (IPO) market is forecast to at least double in size this year from that of last year.

The nation’s IPO market was estimated to range between 2.50 trillion won ($2.36 billion) and 3.50 trillion won in total value this year, according to a survey of the Korea Exchange (KRX) and top 10 local IPO lead managers listed in Maeil Business Newspaper’s RaytheM league table for the equity capital market Wednesday. The top 10 lead managers are: KDB Daewoo Securities, Woori Investment & Securities, Hi Investment & Securities, Mirae Asset Securities, Korea Investment & Securities, Hana Daetoo Securities, Shinhan Investment Corporation, Hanwha Investment & Securities, Kiwoom Securities, and KB Investment & Securities.

“The Korean IPO market would be more dynamic than last year as an increasing number of companies which decided not to go public last year under a worsening financing condition are expected to reattempt to float their shares,” said an official in charge of securities at the KRX.

The nation’s IPO market had 28 newly listed companies with the total value of their IPOs amounting to a mere one trillion won in 2012 ,10 percent of that of 2010, as companies who feared underestimation of their value withdrew their applications to be listed.

But many of them, including Hyundai Oilbank, POSCO Specialty Steel, Fast Future Brand, Sambo E&C, LG Siltron and DYM, are likely to go for IPO again this year.

Other candidates for listing on the main bourse KOSPI market this year include SK Lubricants, Hyundai Rotem, Hyundai Logistics, POSCO E&C, Mirae Asset Life Insurance, Samsung SDS, Coca Cola Beverage Company and TheFaceshop.

The nation’s secondary index market KOSDAQ also has many applicants for IPO. “More companies are expected to go public on the KOSDAQ than last year since discussions have already been made on how to ease the current rigid requirements for listing on the market,” said an official in charge of KOSDAQ at the KRX. “Around 50 to 60 corporations are estimated to submit applications for IPO, with 40 of them set to be successfully listed on KOSDAQ.”

올해 기업공개(IPO) 시장이 지난해보다 최소 2배 이상 규모로 커질 전망이다. 16일 매일경제신문이 지난해 레이더엠 리그테이블 주식자본시장(ECM) 부문 IPO 주관 상위 10개 국내 증권사와 한국거래소를 대상으로 설문조사를 실시한 결과 올해 IPO 시장은 2조5000억~3조5000억원 규모를 기록할 것으로 예상됐다.

대상 업체 기준으로는 55개 이상 기업이 연내 상장을 추진 중인 것으로 나타났다. 이는 `IPO 빙하기`라는 평가를 받는 지난해에 비해 규모 면에서 최소 2배 이상 신장을 낙관하는 것이다.

지난해 IPO 시장은 신규 상장기업(28..
