As of 2005, this was still the most successful IPO of all time.
VA Linux Systems , which sells computers tailored to a popular free operating system, registered a 698% price pop, the biggest first-day gain ever for an initial public stock offering in the U.S. The previous record was the 606% opening-day surge by theglobe.comin November 1998. Offered at $30 a share, VA Linux exploded to end the day at a 4 p.m. price of $239.25.
It was the first time an IPO has ever finished the regular session at above $200 a share on the Nasdaq Stock Market. It meant that in an instant, the stock of the Sunnyvale, Calif., company went from small-capitalization territory to large -- $9.5 billion, or more than half that of Apple Computer .
