How We Crunched the Numbers

To create this ranking, we limited our universe to initial public offerings from Sept. 15, 2008, through Dec. 31, 2011, that were bigger than $500 million, including overallotments exercised by underwriters. We ranked these IPOs by price gain through 90 days after the IPO date. If prices were not available 90 days after the IPO pricing date, we used the following date for which data were available. To identify pricing dates, countries of issuance and total return percentages, we used the Corporate Action Calendar (CACS), Company Filings (CF) and Total Return Analysis (TRA) functions on the Bloomberg Professional Service. If different offering prices were given to institutional and retail subscribers, we used the institutional prices in our calculations. Data are as of May 14, 2012.
