Truett-Hurst IPO Struggles With Wary Investors, Pricing, Delays

The Truett-Hurst IPO continues to struggle for traction in the public markets almost six weeks after the OpenIPO auction-style offering from W. R. Hambrecht commenced. (See Truett-Hurst, Inc. Announces Commencement Of Initial Public Offering).

In the past, OpenIPO auctions have taken about two weeks and there was eager anticipation that this one would fall into that time span.

But, dogged by investor wariness over the offering’s conflicts of interest and by a number of financial red flags and confusion, the offering dropped its pricing range three weeks later. (Truett-Hurst, Inc. Revises Terms Of Proposed Initial Public Offering).

Now, it looks as if it will change again despite the fact that both financier William Hambrecht and Truett-Hurst are relying on the liquidity that  a successful IPO can provide. A follow-up article on that will appear tomorrow.
