Norway Practice Bulletin – 2017

We are committed to supporting and sustaining these relationships through the distribution of this bulletin and regular visits to Norway.

This reflected the global trend where new IPO issuers (-16%) and capital raised (-33%) declined significantly, compared to 2015. Our clients have instead focused on alternatives, including debt restructuring and private placements.
