The 74.2% allocation suggests that the search engine company, which along with early shareholders sold 19.6 million shares in its initial public offering of stock, received enough bids priced at $85 or above to sell as many as 26.4 million shares.
Bahhhh, that was known in this board hours before trading opened.
