Abstract

By IPO market regime, I decompose the effect of revealed private information on the initial return of IPOs (Initial Public Offerings) into adjusted and unadjusted private information and find: (i) investment banks partially adjust the offer price in return for revealed private information in all but the non-hot IPO market; (ii) the economic importance of private information associated with IPOs (and hence agency costs) is procyclical; and (iii) industry information spillovers between IPOs occur only in the hot and very-hot IPO markets.

Keywords: Initial Public Offering, First Day Returns, Partial Adjustment, Valid Instruments
