Viasystems Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIAS), a provider of complex multi-layer printed circuit boards and electro-mechanical solutions, today announced the withdrawal of its previously announced proposed public offering of 2,000,000 shares of its common stock and its largest shareholder’s offering of 2,000,000 shares of common stock. The company and selling stockholder have made a decision to withdraw the offering due to unfavorable market conditions. “We believe that the current market conditions are not favorable to continue with the offering at this time. The company’s management team and board of directors do not consider the current market price of the company’s common stock to be reflective of its inherent value,” said David Sindelar, Chief Executive Officer of Viasystems Group, Inc.
