Harrah’s Cancels Public Offering

Published: November 29, 2010 10:51 am EST

The public offering withdrawn by Harrah’s last week failed because of under pricing of value by potential investors


Bloomberg.com has reported that Harrah’s private equity firms, Apollo Global Management and TPG Capital, had been told by their IPO advisers that potential investors valued Harrah’s at $10 a share, or some $3.37 billion, while Apollo and TPG valued it between $3.8 billion and $4.36 billion.

Given those numbers, Harrah’s cancelled its IPO, becoming the 121st company this year that planned to raise $46 billion but withdrew the offers.
