The statistic illustrates the largest initial public offerings (IPOs) on the main, alternative and international markets in the United Kingdom (UK) during 2019, ranked by the market capitalization at admission to the London Stock Exchange.
An initial public offering is the process by which the shares of a private company are sold to public investors for the first time.
