Cardtronics Prices Low IPO

Cardtronics Inc., a Houston, Texas-based operator and distributor of ATM machines, raised $120 million in its IPO. The company priced 12 million shares at $10 per share, after originally having filed to price 16.67 million shares at between $14 and $16 per share. It began trading yesterday on the Nasdaq under ticker symbol CATM, and closed down at $9.80 per share.
