Google IPO Fetches $23 Billion

Google's Initial Share Price Set at $85

By MATTHEW FORDAHL

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Initial shares of Google Inc. (GOOG) were priced late Wednesday at $85, the low end of a range revised downward just hours earlier, humbling expectations for the most ballyhooed Internet company public stock offering since the dot-com boom went bust.

Still, the offering remains one of the biggest and most highly anticipated for an Internet business, surpassing most of the hot tech issues of the 1990s. It will make billionaires - at least on paper - of founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who started Google six years ago.

The final initial public offering price, set through an unorthodox auction that alienated many on Wall Street, means the stock will likely debut on the Nasdaq Stock Market Thursday. The $85 price values the world's most popular search engine at $23.1 billion, more valuable than companies such as Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN), with a market cap of $16 billion and Lucent Technologies Inc. (LU), valued at $13.5 billion.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
