Facebook Underwriters Said to Support Stock at Near $38 a Share

Facebook Inc. underwriters purchased the company’s stock to keep it from falling below $38 a share after debuting on the Nasdaq Stock Market, people with knowledge of the matter said.

The bankers supported the stock after Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. faced difficulties delivering trade execution messages after the initial public offering, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the transactions are private.
