Activity in the world’s capital markets in the third quarter continued to exceed previous levels. The appetite for stock exchange listings, book buildings, new issues (private and public), and corporate transactions was apparently insatiable, which can be explained in part by the continued increase in global capital flows into shares.
The SIX RX increased a total of 1.8 per cent during the quarter. In July, SIX RX rose by as much as 7.5 per cent. However, demand can fluctuate rapidly. Negative news such as strained supply chains, spiralling transport costs, and component shortages gained the upper hand during the latter part of the quarter. The SIX RX fell by 6.2 per cent in September as the risk of higher inflation and thus rising interest rates increased. Historically, however, the stock market tends to be a little uncertain in the autumn months. So far this year, the stock market is still up by more than 24 per cent.
Naturally, our efforts to find an acquisition target for ACQ continued during the quarter, and I believe that increased volatility in the market may create more interesting situations for ACQ.
