OECD flags high fees, parallel pricing in IPO underwriting

The Paris-based Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development said high underwriting fees for taking a company public seem to have increased and competition should be increased.

For IPOs of less than $100 million, the average cost is 9% to 11% of the transaction. The high price increases the cost of equity "and works against long-term productive investment," the OECD said.

It also said that parallel pricing, whereby firms that are supposed to be competing offer very similar prices, appears to be increased.
