IPOs, Initial Public Offerings: pre & post IPO

Lockup date explained

Print this entry

On the lockup expiration data (usually 180 days after the IPO) shares can be sold by insiders without an SEC filing.

Sometimes the extra stock supply causes a decline in the stock.

Twitter is an example. Their lockup end date was May 6, 2014.  May 5 the stock closed at $38.72. May 6 it closed at $31.80, down 18%.

A word of caution. What happened to Twitter is an example, not necessarily a general rule.
