NCS Multistage Holdings Could Head Lower On Lockup Expiration

October 25, 2017 concludes the 180-day lockup period on NCS Multistage Holdings (NCSM).

When the lockup period ends for NCSM, its pre-IPO shareholders, directors, and executives will have the chance to sell their 38.5 million outstanding shares. With just 9.5 million shares currently trading, any significant sales could flood the market and cause a sharp, temporary, decrease in share value.
