Two of Google's big early investors, the storied Silicon Valley venture capital firms Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Sequoia Capital, decided to withdraw their combined 4.5 million shares from the auction early yesterday, betting they can get a better price at some point in the future.
"People can pick on the IPO all they want. Google got more for their company than any other internet IPO in history.
It was a success."
Seems the media I have been following are giving it a mixed bag, and emphasizing the original pricing trust issue. I would say it wasnt a disaster, hence it was a success. Good one to watch, who believes there shares are worth that much? It will be interesting when all those that couldnt sell start flogging there shares aswell. The success of this wont be based on one days trading. Well done to those that made a profit.
"Agreed - Hey Google bought my house :) " And the rest :) So in this respect good luck to them.
