Sabre Makes Initial Public Offering  

cashSabre Corporation reports that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the proposed initial public offering of shares of its common stock. The number of shares to be sold and the price range for the proposed offering have not yet been determined.
By going public Reuters estimates Sabre could raise as much as $100 million. Sabre was spun off from AMR Corp./American Airlines in 2000. Sabre is privately held by TPG and Silver Lake Partners.

Morgan Stanley, Goldman, Sachs & Co., BofA Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank Securities are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering, Sabre said.

A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective, Sabre said.
