Akrion Tries Again

Akrion Inc., an Allentown, Pa.-based provider of batch-immersion and single-wafer wet cleaning systems for the semiconductor industry, has filed for an $86.25 million IPO. It plans to trade on the Nasdaq under ticker symbol AKRI, with Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank serving as co-lead underwriters. Sunrise Capital Partners holds a 97.7% pre-IPO position. Akrion had originally filed for a $50 million IPO in 2004, but withdrew registration last December, citing “current market conditions.” www.akrion.com
