This was t h e l a r g e s t volume of o f f e r i n g s i n any r e c e n t t h i r d q u a r t e r ,
exceeding t h e corresponding p e r i o d of 1955 by 35 per c e n t . Host
major i n d u s t r i a l groups showed a sharp r i s e i n volume of i s s u e s as

c e n t g r e a t e r t h a n the t h i r d q u a r t e r l a s t y e a r . Nearly a l l i n d u s t r i e s

of $1*23 m i l l i o n ranked t h i r d in importance. However, t h i s t o t a l was
26 p e r cent below t h e volume a year e a r l i e r , with smaller volume of
i s s u e s by consumer and s a l e s f i n a n c e companies accounting f o r t h e
bulk of t h e d e c l i n e . I t should be noted t h a t t h e volume i n t h e

Total Gross Proceeds
Gross proceeds from c o r p o r a t e o f f e r i n g s , which include
refunding and cost of f l o t a t i o n , were $2.7 b i l l i o n during t h e t h i r d
