Matomy’s London listing fails due to weak EU demand

JERUSALEM, April 4 (Reuters) – Plans by Israel’s Matomy
Media Group to list on the London Stock Exchange failed
when it could not raise enough money from EU investors following
poor performance of high-profile Internet stocks, Chief
Executive Officer Ofer Druker said.

Matomy, a digital advertising firm with clients including
American Express, AT&T and HSBC, said
late on Thursday that it had withdrawn its projected $100
million initial public offering (IPO).
