FAQ: Why do I see a company twice when I search for IPO’s in ThomsonOne?

When you search for IPO’s in the Equity module of ThomsonOne, you’ll see some IPO’s twice in the output, like in this example:

Why is that? These are ‘Simultaneous Offerings’: the issuer is either doing an additional transaction or offering the same security into an additional marketplace on the same date. You can see this in your output by adding the item ‘Simultaneous Offering Flag (Y/N)’ to your report. More details about the differences between these offerings can be found by adding these items to your report:

  • Target Market Long Description
  • Global Offering: International Shares Offered
  • Global Offering: Shares Offered This Market
  • Shares Offered This Market
  • Shares Offered All Markets
  • Investor Type Description (in some cases)
