Toys R Us Looking to Raise $800 Million Through IPO
bwbm - Sunday, May 30, 2010

Toys R Us Inc announced this past Friday that it will plan to go public again and will look to raise $800 Million, reports The Associated Press. The ticker symbol for the new stock will be sold under TOYS. The IPO market has been soft this year, so experts say the success of the sale depends on the price. Toys R Us has been experiencing improving sales even in the time of a recession. It is unknown at this time how many shares will be offered, but it may be around 10-20% of the company. Toys R Us was taken public by a group of investment firms back in 2005.

in a short drive distance I have about 10 TRUs. There can't be a demand for that many stores.

Oddly enough, the closest Toys R Us to myself is pretty up to date with everything. I even bought the Animated Arcee figure last weekend (finally!). It's the Wallmarts and Targets in my area which were slacking this last year.

TRU is going down the drain, because they wont update. Back in the day. TRU had Target and Walmart. but then the last guy took over and it all went down hill. Just prep the burial plot for TRU

I have to agree, Target and Walmart are kicking their ass, at least when it comes to TFs. You know, they only sell toys, so how hard is it to stay up to date? They also could offer a decent clearance price. Those movie multipacks are going no where. So sad to say, if TRU can't keep up, thats ... read more

As a community we should all collectively buy that 10%-20% of the company

Once again, Twitter user @miiakira2017 has posted an image of their Transformers-related design work. Today, it's a classic car- the specific make, if any, eludes RAC - that would have turned into a laser pistol-wielding cowboy. Though there's a slight resemblance to 2010's Hunt for the Decepticons Scout-class Hubcap, the replies peg this as a Diaclone-era design, so well before that figure was designed and likely a coincidence.
