FACTBOX-Goldman leads AsiaPac ECM deals; Citi only global bank among top fee earners

earners@ HONG KONG, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Asia-Pacific equity capital markets (ECM) activity fell 13.9 percent in the first nine months of 2017, as a slump in the sale of existing shares more than offset big gains in IPOs in mainland China exchanges, preliminary Thomson Reuters data showed. Share offerings in the region's stock exchanges dropped to $136 billion, with follow-on share sales tumbling 25.6 percent, while initial public offerings rose 18.7 percent, according to data through Sept 27. Goldman Sachs was the top underwriter based on the value of deals it advised, followed by Citigroup and CITIC Securities. Citigroup was the only international financial firm on a ranking based on the estimated fees earned on equity deals, with Chinese securities firms taking nine of the top 10 spots. This underscores the profitability of share offerings in Shenzhen and Shanghai, where global firms have so far failed to make significant inroads. Following is a list of the region's top ECM underwriters in the first nine months of 2017 and the estimated fees earned on equity deals:
