The Warsaw Stock Exchange accounted for 30 percent of all European stock debuts in Q4 of 2012 and for 40 percent of those carried out throughout 2012, according to a study carried out by PwC. The WSE was the most active market in Europe last year, with 105 IPOs, the total value of which was €731 million, followed by London, with 73 IPOs worth €5.1 billion.
On all European stock exchanges, there were 263 IPOs worth a total of €26.5 billion in 2012. Over the past several years, Warsaw has regularly taken the top spot in terms of number of IPOs, though in terms of value, the WSE also usually lags far behind its Western European peers.
