A man walks past the office entrance of Sina Weibo, widely known as China's version of Twitter, in Beijing on April 16, 2014Sina Weibo has sold fewer shares than expected in its US IPO which has been priced below expectations, a report said Thursday, ahead of its listing which takes place after selloffs on Wall Street. The Beijing-based firm, often described as China's version of Twitter, sold 16.8 million US depositary shares at $17, raising $285.6 million before the sale of any additional shares to underwriters, Dow Jones Newswires said, quoting two people familiar with the deal. Those figures are well below the 20 million shares and $340 million which it had been aiming for -- reflecting a cautious mood after the tech-weighted Nasdaq index tumbled for more than three weeks. In March, Weibo had estimated the value of its initial public offering at as much as $500 million.
