The San Jose Mercury News ran a story yesterday on the proposed settlement by the issuer defendants in the IPO allocation cases. The author states that investors should not expect a quick or large recovery. The 10b-5 Daily has an earlier post on the settlement terms.
Quote of note: “Like many average IPO investors, Gallagher is hazy on exactly what iBeam or its investment bank was alleged to have done wrong. But he feels he deserves a cut of the settlement anyway. ‘I feel I deserve it because, well, I’m not certain why,’ Gallagher said sheepishly. ‘Nobody talked me into it, that’s for sure. The opportunity was there, and I decided to go for it.'”
