The article assesses the rise of initial public offerings (IPO) on the Prague stock exchange in the Czech Republic. The Prague stock exchange has clawed its way back after its disastrous first decade and it has now overtaken Budapest to become the second strongest bourse in Central Europe after Warsaw. Every year dozens of new companies make an IPO of shares on the Warsaw bourse but in its entire history Prague has only attracted one issue, that of pharmaceuticals company Zentiva in 2005.
