Note that MEDH priced 4.5 million shares at $8. Insiders opted not to
sell and the deal came at a 27% discount to the middle of the initial
range. That combination allowed the deal to work short term and gives it
a much better chance to work mid-term as well. Still some issues here,
but an attractive pricing. Tradingipos.com does own shares from $8.50
with a stop-out set on a new low $8.29.
MEDH - MedQuist
MEDH - MedQuist plans on offering 9 million shares(assuming overs) at a
range of $10-$12. Insiders will be selling 4.3 million shares in the
deal. Lazard, Macquarie and RBC leading the deal, Loop Capital
co-managing. Post-ipo MEDH will have 51.1 million shares outstanding for
a market cap of $562.1 million on a pricing of $11. Ipo proceeds will
be used for working capital.
SAC PEI CB will own 32% of MEDH post-ipo.
**A rather lame lock-up agreement here. Approximately 12-14 million
shares will not be covered by any lock-up agreements post-ipo meaning
they can be sold at any time. Only 22.5 million shares of the 42 million
non-floated will be beholden to the 180 day lock-up agreement.
