Abstract: Using a sample of 33 IPOs listed on the Tunisian Stock Exchange (TSE) from 1994 to 2012, we study the role of the ex ante uncertainty in the pre-listing IPO process. We find that the higher ex ante uncertainty does not always lead to a high discount level which is not a credible signal for investors. We also find that the level of uncertainty and information asymmetry surrounding the IPO firms is the most important determinant of the investors' demand during the subscription period.
