ABSTRACT
The article reports that when Israel's Shamir Optical Industry Ltd. went public in March 2005, it was not just another Israeli company joining the 130- plus other Israeli companies trading on the Nasdaq. The initial public offering, in which the Northern Galilec-based kibbutz sold 25% of Shamir Optical, raised $56 million. Shares that were offered at $14 each now trade at $16.70, a respectable showing at a time when several recent initial public offerings are trading lower than their offering ranges. Shamir is not the first kibbutz to do an initial public offering.
