The Enquirer: Walnut Group Scores Big for Backing Build-A-Bear. An initial public offering has turned the small bears at Build-A-Bear Workshop into big business for the retailer’s long-time backer, Cincinnati-based Walnut Group. While the Thursday IPO on the New York Stock Exchange reduced the equity group’s position from 18 percent of outstanding shares to 8.8 percent of the St. Louis-based retailer, nobody at Walnut Group was complaining very much.
Build-A-Bear Workshop contracts are now online. Includes many employment agreements, leases, and services agreements. Recently, Shopping.com also had a successful IPO. I’ve also posted Shopping.com contracts online as well.
