I want to know whether current BKS shareholders will receive
shares in the IPO also; someone please answer; my broker
doesn't know.
It wouldn't be fair for present owners in the company to
have to pay extra to keep a position in the internet side
of the business.

I am hoping somebody could answer a quick question on BKS.COM.....
Will shareholders benifit from this IPO? I am hoping this will be a spin off and shareholders will recieve a certain amount of BKS.COM stock for there BKS stock???
U.S Sprint recently spun off PCS
AT&T spun off LU
Stockholders whom owned those stocks recieved shares of the spinoff companies........

beneficially own all of the issued and outstanding Class B Common Stock and approximately % of the outstanding Membership Units, and Bertelsmann, which will beneficially own all of the issued and outstanding Class C Common Stock and approximately % of the outstanding Membership Units, will, collectively, beneficially own all of the High Vote Stock and approximately % of the
outstanding Membership Units which will, following the closing of the Offering, represent approximately % of the outstanding Common Stock (approximately % if the Underwriter's over-allotment option is exercised in full) and approximately % of the voting power of the Common Stock (approximately % if the Underwriter's over-allotment option is exercised in full).Pursuant to the Amended Charter, the holders of the High Vote Stock will have the right to directly elect six of the Company's nine directors, and will control the election of the remaining three directors as well.

I think that is because IPO Central (Hoover) didn't update the information on the company yet. Week of May 10th is the current tentative schedule for pricing.

IPO PRICING-barnesandnoble.com to raise $450 mln

NEW YORK, May 24 (Reuters) - Online retailer barnesandnoble.com <BNBN.O> priced 25 million shares at $18, the high-end of an increased range, for a total of $450 million.

The initial public offering, expected to come to market on Tuesday, has been widely anticipated as the blockbuster deal in a busy week of deals. According to a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, German media giant Bertelsmann AG <BTGGg.F> and Barnes & Noble Inc <BKS.N>. will each retain a 41.1 percent stake in the company, which will compete against online retail giant Amazon.com Inc. and Books-A-Million.

The company's stock debut will be monitored closely. Analysts said it will be a good gauge of how healthy the IPO market is, especially following several deals' mediocre performance in the aftermarket.

"Investors are waiting to see what it is going to do," said Steve Tekirian. "If it does not have a big first-day pop, investors will get a bit worried." He noted that financial news Internet firm TheStreet.com <TSCM.O> , which was also widely anticipated, gained as much as $54 on its first day from its $19 offering price, but was now trading near $35.38. It went public earlier this month. More such aftermarket performances may confirm that enthusiasm for Internet IPOs is drying up.

MSNBC just announced that AMZN is the ONLY bookselling .com that will survive!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The reporter "lisa Napoli", I think it was, said, "Amazon will survive while ALL of it's competitors will be gone in one (1) year." !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How can MSNBC put this crap out?
What do they base their "research" on, or do these $#@!ing
talking heads just clasp ahold of the last "sacred cow" in their own next-to-worthless porfolio and try to prop it up?
AMZN is in such bad shape, they have to go to Europe to get bond issues out, while BNBN has more cash in the bank than capitalization on the street!
The Bird!

With BNBN's service, I think MSNBC is off the mark. I would like to thanks BNBN for getting my four books ordered last Sunday delivered this week on standard mail. I have seen that organization since AMZN in 1999. I am using BNBN more than AMZN for the first time and a very happy customer.
