From the Paper:

"As at the end of 2005, total market capitalization of the Main Board was HK$8,113.3 billion, which is a 22.4% increased when compared with 2004. The average daily turnover of the Main Board in 2005 was Hk$18.2 billion, up 15% from that in 2004. Therefore, the importance of the SEHK cannot be underestimated. Carrying out research in the Hong Kong IPO market increases understanding of the market and also the phenomenon in the market place."
