So far I can't find anything online about it, but CNBC says it is true...

And Larry is buying the island he will be mooring it on. :)

Congratulations to everyone involved with Google. A lot of your hard work over the years is directly paying off now. Enjoy it

The best thing is the IPO silence will finally end. Interesting times ahead. Hand on to your optical mouse.

I wonder if we will get a new Google Search Logo tomorrow with money floating around the "Google" words.

Got an email just now:

If you have submitted a bid, you should access the current prospectus
and carefully reconsider your bid(s). Bids may be accepted by the
underwriters at any time after 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) today
by sending you a notice of acceptance. You may withdraw your bid(s) by
contacting your brokerage firm at any time until the notice of
acceptance is sent to you.

I expect the notice of acceptance to come in about 6.00 PM tonight {that is if I am not outbid}

Finally the wait is over. Never anticipated that this IPO fizzles out this way with lowering of price range, Playboy stories, yada yada ..

Neverthless, Good luck with this IPO. I hope this IPO revives the Bay Area economy a bit more:)

Don't count on it. Instead, count on everyone who buys IPO shares losing about 30% of their value. Google is going to make a few millionaires - the problem is the people they make millionaires used to be BILLIONAIRES :)

Even if the price goes down by 60% from IPO price, it still makes 1000s of Google employees here in Bay Area first time millionaires. Don't you think that will have some +ve impact on the local economy here!. Me thinks, it will!

Maybe ... maybe not. Personally if I lived in California and wasn't a millionaire, I would move when I became one - no way would I let "Uncle California" take my cash in taxes :)

Either way though, it's going to be 6 months before the employees can sell any of their stock. Might not be worth much then.

perhaps they will even be able to purchase a little 2/1 house with that... that's about it.

Actually small portions can be sold at 15 days after they go public, with more and more being able to sell at 90, 120, and 150 days.

Wow .. that seems to be interesting to know. Typical lockout is for 6 months. But GOOG defied norms from the start

Great news for those who aint millionaires - those new ones will be throwing money around, which would result in raise of prices for everyone :)

If the market the day after the IPO(thursday) comes back friday and on the open market the shares trade below the IPO offering. Bang! No more dutch auctions, media deems Googles offering a failure(and the bad press runs wild) and tech IPO's rethink. This could be bigger then the IPO offering itself, Wall Street will have the last word, that is simply something Google cant control.

Im not sure this could go either way, the shares had to be alot lower to avoid this.

If that's true, then that's even more of a reason not to buy. When employees sell their shares, the price per share goes DOWN. The standard 6 month employee hold is designed to prevent this, so the employees don't sell on opening day and tank everything.

There are tons of reasons not to buy. Everyonne can keep touting them as loanuniverse, jcoronella, and I count the money.
