Today maked a successful IPO for Chinese real estate Internet portalSouFun Holdings, with shares opening up at $67.00—a 57 percent increase above where they were priced. The debut follows the slowest week for initial public offerings since February.
"There is definitely a slow-down between the mid-part of August into Labor Day. But in the post-Labor Day time frame, there will be an acceleration of [IPOs] pricing—with two to three transactions priced next week," Brad Miller, global co-head equity syndicate desk, Deutsche Bank told CNBC's "The Strategy Session" on Friday.
"Volatility has definitely had an impact on new issuance and I would say right now timing of launching your transaction has never been more critical to get investor demand, get better pricing dynamics," Miller said.
