Summary Following Kim and Ritter (1999) who find that earnings forecasts provide more accurate valuations of IPOs, this paper analyses whether the owners of companies seeking to list will leave less money on the table if positive dividend per share (DPS) yield forecasts are made in the prospectus. Our findings indicate that DPS yield forecasts by directors of Industrial company IPOs have been an important ingredient in the amount of money left on the table. A similar result is found for Limited Liability IPOs and those that do not offer options to subscribers to buy more shares. The offer of an operational dividend reinvestment plan in the prospectus does not appear significant in reducing the amount of money left on the table.
