KPMG Consulting Cuts Number of Common Shares
The much-anticipated Initial Public Offering (IPO) for KPMG Consulting made the news again yesterday when the firm announced it would reduce the number of common shares that will be made available in the initial sale.
The original number of shares was 367.1 million, and now the number is down to 354.6 million. The price of the shares, however, will remain unchanged at a range of $6.75 to $8.75 a share.
It still is unknown exactly when the IPO will occur, although the firm has received clearance from Nasdaq to trade under the symbol "KCIN."
The sale solidifies the break between KPMG Consulting and its parent company, KPMG. For more information, consult the complete story.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
