Southeastern Grocers postpones planned IPO Southeastern Grocers Inc., operator of Winn-Dixie grocery stores serving seven states in the southeast, said Friday it is postponing its planned initial public offering. "The Company will continue to evaluate the timing for the proposed offering as market conditions develop," it said in a statement. The company just last week said selling shareholders would offer 8.9 million shares in the IPO, priced between $14 and $16 a share, to raise up to $142.4 million. The stock was expected to list on the NYSE under the ticker symbol "SEGR." BofA Securities and Goldman Sachs were the lead underwriters. The announcement comes after a volatile week for trading, in which a wave of buying spurred by a Reddit message board created sharp moves in shares of videogame retailer GameStop Inc. and others that caused hedge funds to exit their short positions and take billion-dollar losses, before brokers moved Thursday to limit trading. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 are both down more than 1% on the week.
