Malaysia's IPO market likely to gain pace next year

Potential big-ticket deals amid improving risk appetite likely to spur share sales

KUALA LUMPUR (Nikkei Markets) -- Malaysia's initial public offering activities will likely pick up pace next year with a robust line-up of big-ticket deals amid an expected uptick in investors' risk appetite, bankers and advisers said.

So far this year, companies have raised $1.4 billion ringgit from 11 IPOs in the Southeast Asia's third-largest economy, according to data from Dealogic. The country's largest IPO this year was petrochemical producer Lotte Chemical Titan Holding's $877.15 million deal in July. That compares with $250 million raised for the whole of 2016.
