This project paper is carried out to examine the performance of the samples of 132 new issues in Malaysian stock market during the period from January 1994 to December 1996 . The behaviour o f new issues is based on the computation of return of IPOs after listing and this paper is also undertaken to examine the relationship between the short-run performance and the new issues returns for each period observed.
