With one quarter remaining for the 2019 financial year, the outlook is not good for successful IPOs, raised capital and de-listings, according to the ASX’s latest monthly figures.

In the year to date 92 new entities have been admitted to the ASX, and only 11 since the start of the calendar year. That’s compared with 113 listings this time last year.

Meanwhile, there have been 109 companies removed from the ASX, compared with 73 de-listings at this time last year.

And while $73.7 billion in capital has been raised for the year to date — a 14 per cent improvement on the $64.4 billion of the prior year — capital raised in April slid 39 per cent year-on-year, dropping by more than $3 billion.

Several experts Stockhead spoke with last year predicted that life on the ASX would get tougher in the 2019 calendar year.

Of the 11 companies to successfully make their debut on the ASX thus far in 2019, seven have seen their share prices grow. In fact, average share price growth is sitting pretty at 73 per cent, but that is largely thanks to a few big winners.

Here is a table of stocks admitted to the ASX in 2019:
