The latest study released today by the Australian Private Equity & Venture Capital Association Limited (AVCAL) shows that private equity (PE) backed Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) have outperformed non-PE backed IPOs since the re-opening of the Australian IPO market in 2013.

The study, which was prepared by leading global financial advisory firm Rothschild in association with AVCAL, analysed the share price returns for 49 IPOs which listed on the ASX during 2013 and 2014 with an offer size of A$100 million or more. Of these, 23 were PE backed and 26 were non-PE backed.
