This is what happens when an IPO fails to attract sufficient buyers. Sometimes the lead manager will lower the price to entice buyers. When a deal is postponed, it usually takes at least six months for an IPO to hit the comeback trail. Examples of big name IPOs that had successful debuts the second time around after being postponed were Donna Karan and Goldman Sachs.
