IPO nabs better than $130 mil

MIAMI — Latin American Internet company El Sitio raised more than $130 million in its IPO, completed Friday.

The Argentina-based company sold 8.2 million shares at $16, and more than doubled in price in its first day of trading to close at $33.31, reflecting investor interest in Lat-Am Internet stocks, such as the recent flotation of Terra Networks, a subsid of Spain’s Telefonica.

Ibero-American Media Partners, a private $500 million fund backed by U.S. investment firm Hicks, Muse, Tate & Furst and the Cisneros Group owns a stake in El Sitio.
