NYSE Reports an unprecedented year of activity in 2022
The NYSE lead the industry in transfers from competing exchanges with $83 billion in market value added.
December 21, 2022 - The New York Stock Exchange, announced the culmination of an unprecedented year of activity at 11 Wall Street including a large number of transfers, one of the largest IPO of the year, and new initiatives in the U.S. capital markets.
The NYSE recorded 34 transfers to the NYSE as of Dec. 20, 2022, the highest number since 2002. These transfers brought $83 billion of additional market capitalization to the NYSE. They included U-Haul Holding Company (NYSE: UHAL), RBC Bearings (NYSE: RBC), Kinsale Capital Group (NYSE: KNSL), Nicolet Bankshares (NYSE: NIC), Silgan Holdings (SLGN) and Kinetik Holdings (NYSE: KNTK).
“There is unparalleled value ascribed to companies with an NYSE listing, and in 2022 we were laser focused on servicing our community of innovators,” said Lynn Martin, President of the New York Stock Exchange. “During a year that saw substantial market volatility, our market model, community and platform delivered substantial savings to issuers and brought an extraordinary level of excitement and activity to our iconic home at 11 Wall Street.”
More than 300 issuers have transferred their listings to the NYSE since 2000, representing more than $1 trillion in current market value.
The NYSE also was home to the largest U.S. IPO of 2022, with Corebridge Financial (NYSE: CRBG) raising $1.7 billion. Despite a quiet year for new listings due to market volatility and other factors, issuers continued to turn to the NYSE for the largest and most complex transactions. The NYSE was home to three of 2022’s top five operating company IPOs.
During the year, the NYSE also received regulatory approval on updated rules for direct listings with a capital raise. The NYSE pioneered this model in 2018, when regulators approved the exchange’s proposed rules for direct listings, which led to Spotify’s (NYSE: SPOT) ground-breaking first-ever direct listing. Additionally, the NYSE pioneered the direct listing with a capital raise, receiving initial approval for this model in 2020.
The NYSE hosted a roster of notable events in 2022 as the exchange building returned to pre-Covid norms. These included visits by Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, a virtual bell ringing by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who visited with listed company CEOs under the auspices of the NYSE Institute, which launched earlier in the year.
The NYSE also continued to focus on ESG, a top priority for listed companies, with the launch of the NYSE Sustainability Advisory Council, which includes members from many listed companies, and advances by the NYSE Board Advisory Council, which helps identify diverse candidates for board seats.
