Earlier this year we discussed that GM was reissuing their stock to raise enough capital, which could pay off some of their massive debt. It would appear that this week is going to be the week that happens and GM won’t have to do it alone.
Entertainment giant Caesars will also go along for the ride, as will eight other high profile companies. The list of IPO’s offered next week are below:
Aeroflex Holding Corp. (ARX) – 17.25 million shares, $13.50 to $15.50. Provides radio frequency and microwave integrated circuits, components and systems for wireless communication systems.

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp. (BAH) – 14 million class A common shares, $17 to $19. Provides management and technology consulting services to the U.S. government.
Caesars Entertainment Corp. (CZR) – 31.25 million shares, $15 to $17. World’s largest casino entertainment provider.
General Motors Co. (GM) – 365 million shares, $26 to $29. World’s second-largest automaker.

Whether or not you’re a fan of a company like GM being able to reissue their IPO after declaring bankruptcy (and this quickly I might add), you may want to consider purchasing their stock. Knowing my background, I’ll be sure to check out Caesar’s because I’m sure I’ve contributed to their profits for years!
