Despite the continuing surge in high-yield new issues, a private chemical company Huntsman LLC's proposed 250 million dollar deal disappointed, which was one of only a handful of postponed or scrapped deals during the year of 2003. Underwriters Deutsche Bank AG and Credit Suisse First Boston spent much of the week of May 19 trying without success to pull together an investor book for a Huntsman LLC's deal that was offering a rich 11.75 percent yield, and that was enough for Huntsman LLC to postpone the deal indefinitely.
