First Twitter lock-up period set to end

  • Twitter's (TWTR) first post-IPO lock-up period is due to expire tomorrow, allowing non-executive staff holding 9.87M shares to sell their stock.
  • That would increase the number of tradable shares by 12% to 90M. Another 474.7M shares will become eligible for sale in May.
  • Twitter's shares have more than doubled since it listed in November, although they've sunk 14% since the company released its latest quarterly earnings last week.

    Non-event with Twitter trading 26m shares per day. The real lock-up is 400m+ shares though, which is definitely meaningful.

    Non-event especially consider TWTR is trading ~ 26m shares per day. The lock-up in 90 days is significant in that it unlocks over 400m shares.
