Manchester United set to launch IPO

  • Manchester United is expected to launch its IPO in New York as early as next week, for pricing in early August.

    The move comes after earlier attempts in Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK.

    The date marks a change from the original schedule, which was to kick off the IPO after the U.S. Labor Day holiday on September 3.

    In another change, the soccer powerhouse is now looking to raise $300 million in the IPO, less than the $500 million previously set.
