The Google IPO
ICMR HOME | Case Studies Collection
Google's dual share system also came in for
criticism. This system, considered antiquated, was described by
most investors as unfair. Just a week before the launch of the
IPO, Google's founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page violated the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission by breaking the "quiet period". Another violation that SEC discovered was Google's failure to report the shares that it had issued to its employees and consultants in the period September 2001 and July 2004.
