Initial public offers in Latin America made a strong comeback last year, growing nearly eightfold from 2016, according to Latinvex research.
Last year’s tally is also nearly twice as high as the previous three years combined.
The $1.6 billion IPO by Carrefour Brasil, a unit of the French retail giant Carrefour, in July became the top offer last year, closely followed by the December, $1.5 billion offer by BR Distribuidora, a unit of Brazilian state oil producer Petrobras.
