ABSTRACT
This article examines how insiders who provide capital and advisory services determine the proportion of common stock to be sold during an IPO and shows that, after the IPO, a high-value investee's insiders continue to hold a significant fraction of its equity stake relative to a low-value investee `s insiders. The result is consistent with the signaling of the insider trader reputation, the lock-up argument, and the only least-cost separating equilibrium that survives the intuitive criterion.
