In the first six months of 2017, the market for IPOs rebounded from 2016, which was impacted by global equity market volatility.

(NYSE: AZUL) and China’s leading K-12 schools operator Bright Scholar Education Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: BEDU), exemplify NYSE’s strategy to help innovative companies access public markets to build on their vision and unlock value.

“Market conditions this year have been solid for raising capital in the U.S., enabling companies to invest, innovate, hire and grow - ultimately fueling the economy,” said John Tuttle, Global Head of Listings, NYSE. “We are thrilled that these companies chose the NYSE for their IPO listings, which is a testament to the strength of our market model and the value we provide to our global community of great companies.”

1H2017 highlights (through June 30, 2017):
