In 1999, Goldman Sachs Group’s IPO collected 3.6 billion dollars form the public which made it the second ever largest IPO. The amount of capital of the investment bank reached up to 33 billion dollars due to that deal. In the initial trade, Goldman’s had issued 69 million shares who’s price went to 76 from 53 per share, before the end of the day.
As a non technology IPO, Goldman Sachs’ performance was incredible. However, the fact is that, Goldman is not like the other public companies which deal according to the traditional give and take policy with their competitors and shareholders.
