According to this report, Vonage (VG) may have violated the law by not including a link to their prospectus in the email sent to customers offering the IPO. If so, this could be seen as an “illegal offer.”
If this is found to be the case, the company would have to buy back customers’ stock at $17 per share. The current price is $12.01. This sounds like bad news.
CNN says: “Vonage did not return calls seeking comment.” In a way, that’s kind of ironic. Perhaps the storms in the northeast knocked out their cable, rendering their phone service useless.
