IPO Withdrawal: Harry & David

May 7, 2008 by Douglas A. McIntyre

Harry & David Holdings, Inc. has withdrawn the company’s IPO Filing registration statement and all related exhibits.

The current climate is being blamed for the IPO withdrawal: "…..the Registration Statement has been abandoned due to, among other things, market conditions."

Harry & David Holdings, Inc. was formerly Bear Creek Holdings.  The company is a multi-channel retailer and producer of gift-quality fruit, gourmet food products and other gifts that are marketed under the Harry and David brand. The products include Royal Riviera pears, Fruit-of-the-Month Club, Tower of Treats gifts, and Moose Munch caramel and chocolate popcorn snacks.
