Does anyone know if there's such a thing as a "typical" ipo discount? I'd assuming it's something along the lines of 15% ? maybe 25%?

15-30% is the range I've been given by a boutique and a BB person... I wonder if that holds for the IPOs this year though.


what is an IPO discount?


Normally in an IPO the shares are issued at a discount to what is considered their intrinsic value and that's why investors keenly await IPOs and make money on most of them.


Typically between 10 - 20%. Right now its closer to 20% because investors are requiring a greater discount given underlying macroeconomic fundamentals.
