Abstract

This article examines the interaction between underwriter reputation and market activities during the initial public offering (IPO) process. Underwriter reputation is a significant determinant of premarket underwriter activities, weakly related to aftermarket price stabilization activities, and unrelated to issuer returns. Premarket underwriter activities are a significant determinant of issue-date returns and aftermarket underwriter activities but are unrelated to longer-run returns. Aftermarket underwriter activities are significantly related to longer-run returns. The results suggest that simultaneous consideration of underwriter reputation and market activities is important if proper inferences about the IPO process and investor returns are to be drawn.
