Factbox - CITIC tops AsiaPac ECM volume, fees as Chinese firms' clout grows

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Asia-Pacific equity capital markets (ECM) activity sank 22.5 percent in 2016, as weak IPO performance curbed demand for new listings in the region and listed companies slashed secondary offerings because of volatile equity markets, preliminary Thomson Reuters data showed.

Share offerings in the region’s stock exchanges dropped to $207.4 billion, with follow-on share sales tumbling 29.3 percent and far outpacing the 2.4 percent decline in initial public offerings, according to data through Dec. 28.

Hong Kong kept its crown as the world’s top IPO venue, followed by Shanghai, as major exchanges, including the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq and Tokyo Stock Exchange, experienced a sharp decline in deal activity.

China’s largest securities firm, CITIC Securities Co Ltd (600030.SS) (6030.HK), led the region both in the volume of deals it advised on and on estimated fees earned, the first time ever a domestic firm managed that feat, in a sign of the growing clout of Chinese investment banks. UBS (UBSG.S) and Goldman Sachs (GS.N) had led ECM rankings in the region since 2002.

Following is a list of the region’s top ECM underwriters in 2016 and the estimated fees earned on the equity deals.
