Lehman Brothers shot to the top of the asset-backed league tables for public and rule 144A underwriting in the second quarter, as preliminary numbers showed. Lehman issued $10.4 billion worth of business for a leading 15.4% market share in the second quarter according to Securities Data Co.

This was a considerable jump from its fifth place finish in the first quarter, when the investment bank led $3.9 billion in deals for a market share of less than 8%. (For preliminary League Tables, see p.10.)
