February’s Editorial

Although the evolution of the European economies remains uncertain, the US economy is already showing signs of recovery. Besides, the financial results announced by American and even some European large capitalizations for FY 2011 are rather good. Along with the effect of the liquidities injected in the system thanks to national revival plans, these positive signs have helped the stabilization of stock markets worldwide and in France in particular (around 3400 points).

IPO which had been postponed (like Facebook) are back on the agenda. In Paris, 3 IPO’s on Euronext are scheduled for February. It will be interesting to measure investor’s appetite for primary issuances. If it is confirmed, the pace of M&A operations could speed up.
