NEW YORK (CNNfn) - The initial public offering market was active Wednesday night, with the biggest name pricing shares and the largest deal delaying another day.|
Leather product company Coach Inc. raised $118.08 million by selling 7.38 million shares at $16 a share, the high end of its price range of $14-to-$16.
But Asia Global Crossing Ltd. ("AGCX"), the pan-Asia telecommunications carrier that expects to partner with GlobalCenter, a specialist in hosting Internet site infrastructure and managing e-commerce, decided to wait another day after drastically reducing its offering Tuesday night from $993 million to about $530 million.
Coach is being spun off by food and apparel company Sara Lee Corp. (SLE: Research, Estimates), and analysts said the profitable company is a good "old economy" IPO which should see solid gains, though not the runs tech stocks continue to see.
