Summary This paper follows How (2000) who examined 130 Australian mining and energy initial public offerings (IPOs) from 1979 to 1990 to report an average 107.18 % underpricing return by those IPOs. This study updates that report by investigating 127 Australian mining and energy IPOs from 1994 to 2001 to find a substantially lower 17.93 % average first day return. These updated findings have implications for both new companies seeking to float and also for the subscribers wishing to invest in these new listings.
