Description
This deal souvenir was given to venture capitalist Steven Fink when he and his partners at Knowledge Universe decided to take LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. public in July 2002. Despite poor market conditions in early 2002 the LeapFrog initial public offering (IPO) did well.
A deal souvenir is an elaborate presentation of a tombstone advertisement, the print announcement of an IPO or certain banking transaction which were mandated by the Securities Act of 1933. A tombstone includes the basic details of the issue, the names of the major bankers, and the underwriters.
