The new disclosure, which came in an amended filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, expands to 31 the number of securities firms that will be selling shares in the offering. Google filed late last month for a $2.7 billion IPO that is expected to be Wall Street's biggest event since the collapse of the tech bubble.
The Mountain View, California-based company filed named a total of 29 other firms to assist Morgan Stanley & Co. Inc. and Credit Suisse First Boston to handle the IPO, including Allen & Co. LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and Goldman, Sachs & Co..
The new firms are listed in an amended prospectus filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, but Google did not provide other details such as the amount of shares it plans to offer or the price per share.
