STOCK FOR AMERICAN SKIING COMPANY BREAKS $1 A SHARE THIS MONTH
STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe stock price of American Skiing Compnay (parent of the Steamboat Ski Area) has struggled to break $1 a share in August.
American skiing's stock, which was priced at $17 a share after the initial public offering in autumn 1998, was priced at 96 cents a share at the closing bell on Wall Street Friday. The stock seemed stuck at that level all week.
American Skiing, which trades as SKI, saw its stock break a dollar frequently in July and the stock rose to $1.12 on July 16, the day company officials announced they had completed restructuring its debt.
The final piece in ASC's financial restructuring remains selling the Steamboat Ski Area.
Interested suitors were expected to visit Steamboat during the past two weeks, with the names of finalists expected to emerge in late August.
