The IPO of Gain Capital (forex,com) is due this week. Gain Capital Holding wishes to be valuated at $536 million. Gain pushed forward with the IPO, pending for quite a long time, after the successful IPO of of FXCM, done at the beginning of the month.
FXCM asked and got a valuation of over 1 billion dollars. Its share price rose from $14 at the IPO pricing to as high as $15.34, above the range of the IPO, but since then it fell, together with the market. On Friday, FXCM’s share closed at only $13, the lower border of the range.
Another drop in the stock markets this week could endanger the IPO of Gain. This will be interesting to follow.
