Booz Allen Hamilton Prices IPO at Low End of Its Range

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding has priced its IPO at $17 a share, setting its $238 million offering at the low end of its range, the company announced Tuesday.

The management and technology consulting firm, which largely serves government clients, apparently failed to light a fire under prospective investors in the way that General Motor's offering did: The automaker on Wednesday boosted the size of its pending IPO by almost a third to meet strong share demand. Booz Allen had an initial pricing range of $17 to $19 a share, and had there been sharp demand would have priced the deal on the upper side of the range.
