Four new determinants of initial/long-run IPO (initial public offering) returns from the perspectives of market conditions are proposed in this paper. The associated effects are examined by using the samples of Taiwan's high-tech IPO companies. Our empirical findings are consistent with the following notions. First, the four new determinants proposed perform remarkable effects on the IPO returns. Second, the length for IPO and IPO clustering phenomena has notable impacts on the long-run returns of IPO. In contrast, the performances of public stock markets show significant effects on the initial returns of IPO.
