Early signs point to strong IPO for Hilton Worldwide

|About: Hilton Worldwide Holdings (HLT)|By:, SA News Editor

Hilton Worldwide (HLT) is scheduled to price its IPO on December 12 and start trading the next day in what will be one of the larger IPOs of the year.

The company's emergence as a public company again is expected to go very smoothly after the Hilton story was told up and down Wall Street during a successful $13B debt recapitalization in October.

A capital-light plan by Hilton to expand through franchising is also seen as taking some risk off the table.
