PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Ancestry.com, a family history web site, said Friday that a secondary offering of about 3.8 million shares of common stock was priced at $26 per share, a 2 percent discount to their latest close.
The selling stockholders are giving the underwriters a 30-day option to buy up to an additional 569,393 shares to cover excess demand.
Shares of Ancestry.com fell 25 cents to $16.25 in pre-market trading Friday.
Morgan Stanley and Bank of America Merrill Lynch are acting as joint book-running managers and representatives of the underwriters. Citi, Jefferies & Co. and Piper Jaffray are serving as co-managers.
