It is amazing why companies are not rushing out to launch their IPOs since this is such a golden window. Probably they can get their companies out at higher valuations and the share price can be sustained post listing. If you look at the pipeline, there is absolutely "nothing in sight" except for a Indian business trust called Global Telecommunications Infrastructure Trust.
For readers who want to know how to find out where the pipeline is, you can visit the MAS Opera website.
While Singapore is currently experiencing a famine, our nearby neighbor is having the whale of its time. You can access the Malaysia's IPO exposure here (which is somewhat like our MAS Opera).
The upcoming Astro IPO comes right after two mega IPOs this year, IHH Berhad and Felda Global Ventures.
These IPOs were only outdone by Facebook and Japan Airlines! Amazing year for Malaysia. Perhaps Mr. IPO should consider expanding out of Singapore and start a new blog for companies listing in South East Asia, then HK & Asia, then Europe then USA. (stop dreaming please...)
How does my proposal sound? Any interested investors? My blog will file for IPO when it expands all the way to USA. :-P
