Despite a choppy start to the year for initial public offerings (IPOs) in Europe, Istanbul has seen some successful floats including a 400 million lira ($266 million) offering by cash-and-carry firm Bizim (BIZIM.IS), whose shares are now trading around 22 percent above their 25 lira listing price.
Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Garanti Securities are running the offering for Ronesans, which focuses mainly on developing and investing in shopping centres and offices.
